  • Welbeck Abbey Brewery announces revamp of its CORE RANGE. Monday 4 April 2022

    Welbeck Abbey Brewery announces revamp of its core range, with three brand new brews inspired by tales from the Welbeck Estate. Available from April 4th.

    Following careful review of their existing range of beers, and listening to customer feedback, Welbeck Abbey Brewery has decided to reduce and update their core range to just four ales. The ever popular ‘Red Feather’ will be staying and will be joined by three exciting new beers, all very different from each other. This will allow for greater availability of innovative ‘monthly specials’ throughout the year.

    Managing Director, Claire Monk says:

    “After 10 years supplying beer into pubs, restaurants, and bottle shops, we felt it was time to review our core range, and as such, our brewing team have been working hard over the last three months to hone recipes, using modern techniques to get the very best flavours from traditional malt and hops. By having a broader mix of ‘modern’ and ‘traditional’ beers in both the core range and specials on offer, we hope to appeal to a wider customer base. Having a smaller range of core beers plus more innovative specials will lend itself much better to our new bottled range, and with a joint approach across cask and bottled beer we hope to get drinkers excited about Welbeck and gain traction in areas of the market we have yet to break into.”

    In a further exciting development, the brewery has had its own, in-house bottling line installed.

    Brewer Tom Roe explains:

    “This gives us full control over how we process our beer on site. We’ve taken the decision to move away from filtered and force-carbonated bottled beers, to the more natural process of bottle-conditioning. The benefits of this include increased flavour profile through no filtration and a slower maturation, ensuring that our bottled beer is as flavoursome as possible. It also means we can cut down on the use of plastic, transportation and externally sourced C02, improving our carbon footprint, something which is important to us here at Welbeck. Having a bottling line on-site also allows us to produce smaller, one-off batches of beer which we are very excited about.”

    The new core range will include a 5% West Coast American IPA, a crisp Continental Pale at 4.4% and a 3.7% Golden English session ale. Monthly specials will always include a dark ale as porters and stouts remain popular, as well as low strength session ales, well hopped IPAs, and everything else in between.

    These fabulous new beers will be in pubs from the week commencing 4th of April, and if you want to find out more, Claire will be holding a Meet The Brewer event at The Winchester in Sherwood on Thursday 21st of April, as well as tastings at Welbeck Abbey Brewery on Tuesday 5th of April. Bottled beers are available to buy online, with free local delivery and 10% off if you spend over £45.

    For further information about this news release, please contact: Jess Nixon, Sales and Marketing Assistant at ku.oc.kceblew@noxin.ssej or by calling 01909 512539. More details can be found at Welbeck Abbey Brewery.

  • BeerHeadZ-All 5 pubs in GBG 2020 Friday 20 September 2019



    High Fives! All BeerHeadZ bars feature in prestigious Good Beer Guide

    Five years, five pubs and five entries in 2020 guide.

    BeerHeadZ was founded just five years ago in Retford and have expanded rapidly; opening pubs in Grantham, Nottingham, Lincoln and Melton Mowbray, five in total. BeerHeadZ has developed a sound reputation for quality and exciting beer and the brand is now instantly recognised by beer lovers around the East Midlands.

    The Good Beer Guide, now in its 47th edition, is produced annually by CAMRA (The Campaign for Real Ale) and features 4,500 UK pubs serving the best quality beer. It is compiled by an army of unpaid volunteers who anonymously inspect the Nation’s pubs to produce a list of the few that make it into the Guide, which is widely referred to as ‘The Drinker’s Bible’. It is the go-to resource for all discerning beer drinkers.

    To celebrate the milestone of ‘five years, five pubs, five entries’, BeerHeadZ have commissioned a beer called ’555’ which will be brewed by the pub managers under the careful guidance of Dean Baker of Baker’s Dozen Brewery in Ketton. The one-off beer will then be available only in BeerHeadZ and a few other selected pubs for a limited period.

    Martin Johnson, Operations Director of BeerHeadZ said: “Many beer drinkers enjoy trying and tasting new beers, and we hope they enjoy adding ‘555’ to their list. They’d better be quick though, because it won’t be around for long”.

    Phil Ayling, BeerHeadZ Founder and Director, said “The quality of our beer offer has always been our focus and BeerHeadZ’ strapline ‘BEER. SERIOUSLY.’ has now been confirmed by the inclusion of all five of our pubs in the CAMRA Good Beer Guide 2020. Thanks to every member of our hard-working teams that have made this possible”.

    The CAMRA Good Beer Guide 2020 is published on September 12th 2019.

    BeerHeadZ is a small chain of Indiepubs specialising in quality beers served from cask, draft, bottle and can, plus ciders and wines. They currently run five pubs in the East Midlands area: Grantham, Lincoln, Melton Mowbray, Nottingham and Retford.

  • Welbeck Abbey Brewery triumph in Great Taste 2018 Awards Thursday 4 October 2018

    Welbeck Abbey Brewery Triumphs at Great Taste Awards

    Great Taste, the world’s most coveted food awards which celebrates the very best in food and drink, has announced the Great Taste stars of 2018. Out of over 12,600 products to be judged, local microbrewery Welbeck Abbey Brewery was awarded an astounding six awards! This includes five 1-star accolades for their bottles of Portland Black & Henrietta, as well as for their Red Feather, Harley, and Cavendish mini kegs. Their Red Feather bottle was awarded a 2-star accolade.

    “It was our first year ever entering the awards and we were completely overwhelmed with our results,” Welbeck Abbey Brewery’s Creative Director, Jess Low, explains. “Everyone at the brewery works incredibly hard and we really love what we do, and we want our products to reflect that. We are so proud to have our ales recognised in these prestigious awards and grateful for the feedback we received from the judges”.

    Judged by over 500 of the most demanding palates, Great Taste is widely acknowledged as the most respected food accreditation scheme for artisan and speciality food producers. As well as a badge of honour, the unmistakeable black and gold Great Taste label is a signpost to a wonderful tasting product, which has been discovered through hours and hours of blind-tasting by hundreds of judges. Of the 12,500+ entries into Great Taste this year, 192 have been awarded a 3-star, 1,207 received a 2-star and 3,254 were awarded a 1-star accolade. Welbeck Abbey Brewery’s award-winning products can always be found at The Welbeck Farmshop, as well as at a large number of pubs, restaurants, and independent bottle shops in the local area. Follow them on Social Media or visit their website for more information at .


    Notes to editors:

    Welbeck is one of the great traditional landed estates, nestled within Sherwood Forest. It is home to an artisan village, producing specialist foods and crafts in a beautiful rural setting.

    The brewery is based at the centre of this community; housed in a listed barn, it produces hand crafted ales using the estate’s own spring water and a unique strain of nurtured yeast.

    The brewery is open Monday to Friday from 8am to 4pm.

    About Great Taste

    Great Taste is the largest and most trusted accreditation scheme for fine food and drink. Established in 1994, it encourages and mentors artisan food producers, offering a unique benchmarking and product evaluation service leading to an independent accreditation that enables small food and drink businesses to compete against supermarket premium own label brands.

    Since 1994 over 134,000 products have been assessed. This year 12,634 products were blind-tasted by panels of specialists: top chefs, food writers, influencers, food critics, restaurateurs and fine food retailers.

    Great Taste ratings

    3-star: Extraordinarily tasty foods – less than 3% of products are awarded a 3-star each year – don’t

    leave the shop without buying it!

    2-star: Above and beyond delicious – less than 10% of entries will achieve this rating

    1-star: A food that delivers fantastic flavour. Approximately 25% of entries will achieve this rating each year.

    What are Great Taste judges looking for?

    They’re looking for great texture and appearance. They judge the quality of ingredients and how well the maker has put the food or drink together. But above all, they are looking for truly great taste.

    How do they work?

    Each team of three to four judges blind-tastes around 25 products per session, discussing each product as a coordinating food writer transcribes their comments directly onto the Great Taste website, which producers access after judging is completed. Over the years, numerous food businesses, start-ups and well-established producers have been advised how to modify their foods and have subsequently gone on to achieve Great Taste stars. Food or drink that is deemed worthy of Great Taste stars is also tasted by a team of arbitrators, who taste, confer and agree on the final award given. If judges feel that a product needs some adjustment, and is therefore not likely to receive an award, the food or drink gets a second chance on a referral table, where another team blind-tastes and deliberates. For a Great Taste 3-star award, the vast majority in the room - which can be as many as 30-40 experts - must agree that the food or drink delivers that indescribable ‘wow’ factor.

    What should consumers look for?

    The logo. The Great Taste symbol is their guarantee a product has been through a rigorous and independent judging process. It’s not about smart packaging or clever marketing – it’s all about taste.

  • Springhead Brewery Newsletter 08th November 2017 Thursday 9 November 2017

    Springhead Newsletter

    A big hello to all of our drinkers, and we hope you’re having a lovely week! We have a whole host of exciting news packed into our latest newsletter, including a Silver medal win for our American Pale Ale, Outlawed, at the Midland’s SIBA Awards on Friday, as well as a nomination in the North Notts Business Awards, our upcoming Christmas beers and info on stocking up on them for the festive season, our new beer, Exodus, and lots more!

    SIBA Award

    We are very pleased to announce that our triple-hopped citrussy APA, Outlawed, won a silver award in SIBA's Midlands Independent Beer Awards 2017, Cask Standard Bitters and Pale Ales category on Friday! A huge thank you to the organisers and the judges, and of course to our wonderful drinkers, and a big congrats to our Head Brewer Keir for the sterling work he’s been doing on our brews! This follows on from a Gold Award for our porter Drop O’ The Black Stuff in last year’s awards, and another silver the year before that, so we’re very happy to see our beers being celebrated and gaining critical acclaim.

    We’re also always very interested in hearing your feedback on our brews, and like to feature your reviews on our website and social media, so if you’d tried one of our beers recently, please let us know what you thought on ku.oc.daehgnirps@ofni or via our Facebook page

    We also very much welcome your reviews of our beers Untappd, via their website ( or app, or on Ratebeer (!

    Current Seasonal Special – Surrender

    Our current seasonal special is our beautiful South Pacific Pale, Surrender, made with Vienna malt, and finest Equinox and Cascade hops for a hit of tropical fruit flavours. It’s always a real favourite, so catch it while you can!

    Upcoming Seasonal Specials for the Festive Period

    We also have two very special seasonal brews coming up to see us merrily through the festive season - Fallen Angel, which is pale, with citrussy flavours and cinnamon warmth will be available from mid November, and Rudolph’s Ruin, which is caramel-coloured, with fruity flavours of dates and figs will be ready for the start of December.

    Our Beers in Craft Kegs

    Following its popularity in cask, our lovely South Pacific Pale, Surrender, is soon to join Roaring Meg and Outlawed in keg form. The craft kegging process, in which the beers are unfined and lightly filtered to maximise in aroma, taste and clarity has proved fantastic in preserving the flavours true to their original format, so if you haven’t tried them yet in keg we highly recommend them! We’re also very happy to see that producing our beers in kegs has enabled a whole host of other pubs and bars to stock our beers who previously weren’t able to. If you’d like to try them in your local, ask your landlord to get in contact, or let us know where and we’d be happy to give them a call to see what we can arrange!


    This month, our brewers have also been busy with a new concoction - introducing our brand new beer, EXODUS!

    Exodus, 3.7% ABV, Colour: Golden

    Tasting notes: A bright golden-coloured beer, with a bold citrus flavour, balanced by a biscuity malt body, and with a burst of grapefruit aroma. Refreshing and clean tasting; the perfect session beer.

    Background: Exodus is our newest brew, light, and packed with fresh citrus flavour. It is brewed using Pale and Munich malt, Cascade hops, and an all-natural grapefruit infusion for a tropical citrus burst.

    The beer has had a great reception so far, and has gone out to several wholesalers already, so let us know if you spot it on a bar near you! Exodus has been flying out the brewery – so much so, that we’re already had to produce our second brew of it!

    Stock up on our Beers for Christmas!

    With the festival season just around the corner (how did that happen?!), we’ve also been preparing for the Christmas rush by getting in new batches of our two bottle and a branded Springhead glass presentation gift packs, as well as our 17 and 35 pint boxes of beer, which are perfect to see you through Christmas and New Year or for your next party! We also have our beers available for you to enjoy at home in bottles, cans, or even a full 9 gallon cask for the more ambitious beer connoisseur. Call us on 01777 229 020 or email ku.oc.daehgnirps@ofni for more info or to arrange to collect your order either from our brewery in Laneham, near Retford, or from our central Nottingham pick up point in The Park (NG7), or ask our team if we’re able to deliver to your door!

    Our brewery tap, Meg’s Bar, will also be open as a pop-up Christmas shop for you to call in, sample our Christmas seasonal specials and other beers, and stock up on our beers in all formats from 9am-4pm from Monday-Friday the week before Christmas (18th to 22nd December).

    Roaring Meg Cans in Regional Co-op Branches

    We’ve also had a new batch of cans of our flagship IPA made up in preparation for Christmas, and also ready for our first order to go into regional Co-op Branches! Please let us know if you spot it on the shelves, and what you think to the cans! The cans are 330ml craft cans, which are looking and tasting great, and you can also buy the cans direct from us in packs of 6 or cases of 24.

    Nottingham Robin Hood Beer & Cider Festival 2017

    Finally, a big thanks to everyone who visited us, stopped to chat and enjoyed a beer with us at the Nottingham Robin Hood Beer and Cider Festival, where we had a Springhead bar from the 11th to the 14th of October. We had a fantastic weekend there, tried some truly delicious beers, and were very happy to see so many friendly faces visiting our bar and trying the eight beers we had on over the weekend. If you have any pictures from the festival, please send them in!

    I think that’s everything for now – it’s been a busy month! As always a huge thanks for all of your support.

    Best wishes,

    Eve Springhead Brewery
