Cask is the word from Cloudwater! Only two years after dropping cask beers from its production, award-winning Cloudwater has decided to re-introduce cask in very limited quantities. Writing on their blog here they sate: “If you’re the sort of establishment that has a cellar that’s maintained between 10.5ºC-12ºC at all times, know to dispense cask when it’s conditioned out past any rise and fall of diacetyl producing VDK, and have enough stillage to serve cask beer when it’s ready and bristling with CO2, and not just when one of your lines is free, please get in touch here to register your interest”. Well, we ARE, we DO, we HAVE and we have been allocated casks for all four BeerHeadZ pubs! We are really excited to be among the first pubs in the country to once again showcase Cloudwater beers in …

BeerHeadZ are proud to announce our third venue has opened in Nottingham. The pub, located in the historic grade II* listed ‘Cabman’s Shelter’, part of the Nottingham Railway Station, opened on time yesterday at 12pm, despite two hand pumps only arriving for install at 11.20. Talk about cutting it fine! Our first customer was Mr Downing, dad of manager Greg, who was duly served with a pint of Abbeydale Restoration at the crack of noon! The first beer to run out was Tiny Rebel Juicy, closely followed by the aforementioned Abbeydale. We had a great crowd in all day and met some lovely people. Hopefully they liked what they saw and tasted and will be back as friends. Initial opening hours will Sun-Thu 12.00-22.00 and Fri & Sat 12.00-23.00. We will monitor this and extend our hours if demand is …

Despite drinkers up and down the country fearing another hike in beer duty in yesterday’s budget, the Chancellor announced that duty has been frozen (until the next budget at least). BeerHeadZ have decided to add to this good news by actually CUTTING the price of a pint by 20p to celebrate the opening of the new BeerHeadZ Nottingham to be followed in the New Year by Melton Mowbray and Lincoln. Reducing our prices, however, means we are no longer going to be able to extend our current 10p pint discount to loyalty card holders (which we have held for over three years) beyond December 1st. But be assured that there will be great offers in the future, starting very soon with a special promotion from the Cat Asylum brewery. Please remember that BeerHeadZ serve all our beers in oversize, lined …
