Micro-brewery set to celebrate 25th birthday with host of events

A North Notts craft micro-brewery is set for a double celebration on Friday - with drinkers encouraged to come along to a number of events across the region.


Not only is Springhead Brewery, Main Street, Retford, set to celebrate its 25th anniversary, but also the 25th birthday of their award-winning IPA, ‘Roaring Meg’.

To mark the occasion, parties will be taking place across the Midlands, where drinkers will be able to sample a selection of Springhead’s craft beers, live music and a free buffet.

Events will take place on Friday, July 30, 6pm-8pm, at the following venues: The Bees’ Knees at Springhead Brewery, Laneham; The Boat Inn, Hayton; The Bramley Apply, Southwell, and The Roaring Meg, Newark.

The brewery has already received a major boost this week - after they were presented with a Silver Award at the East Midlands Champion Beer of Britain competition.

Springhead managing director, Helen Teasdale, was presented with the top industry award at the Derby City Charter Beer Festival.

She said: “A huge thanks to the organisers of the event and the competition judges – we are delighted to have received the Silver Award in the Golden Ales category.

“Our region is proud to produce some fantastic craft brews so Meg, known as ‘the big blonde’ to her drinkers, was up against some stiff competition, and we’re glad to see her recognised with the award tonight.

“This year is the 25th anniversary of ‘Roaring Meg’ and our brewery, so it’s great to mark our silver anniversary with a prestigious Silver Award, and we hope you will join us in raising a glass to celebrate at our Summer Festival, or at the ‘Roaring Meg Day’ parties we are planning to thank our supporters on the 31st.”
