The Head of Steam on Hanover Street finally opened to the public on 21st September. The venue, operated by Camerons Brewery of Hartlepool, features an ‘island’ bar and has 7 cask ale lines and 1 for real cider. Currently, there are three from Camerons, two from Leeds Brewery and the remaining are from local brewers such as Neptune, Rock the Boat, Liverpool Organic and Chapter. A discount is available to CAMRA members on production of a valid card.
The previous bar area has been replaced by a series of booths, which will seat up to 6 people comfortably, and feature their own power and USB charging points. The VIP area at the rear has been retained and renamed ‘The Tasting Room’ and is supported by Chimay and features another 2 real ale pumps as well as craft keg fonts.
The Tasting Room will be used to host events. The first event is an evening with Stone Brewing on Tuesday, 5th October at 7pm and will feature beer sampling followed by beer & cheese pairing session from 8pm. This event is free. Then Chimay is hosting a Beer & Cheese Experience on Wednesday, 18th October from 7:30. This event is also free but places need to be booked by emailing the pub as places are limited.
