Well we did it, by the skin of our teeth! The swinging pub sign went up with just 20 minutes to go and we opened the doors bang on time to our first customers – Andrew and Linda Birkhead along with JD the dog. The first beer pulled was BlackEdge Hop at 3.8%. The Birkheads were closely followed by several more customers and by 6.30 we had a bustling pub atmosphere. A very promising start!
We are still a little rough around the edges – the toilets need decorating and some panelling on the walls needed, but these will be done as soon as possible. The main thing is that the beer is good! Last night was started firing with all eight pumps, but this will drop to four when normality has resumed.
Your regular BeerHeadZ behind the bar will be Graeme Carson (above, right) and Chris Russon, with regular appearances by Dave and Phil (both far too ugly to be pictured).
Thanks to everyone who called in last night for their support. We hope you enjoyed the BeerHeadZ experience and look forward to serving you again in the near future. We are also excited about welcoming new customer and making new friends over the next few weeks and months.
