Camerons Brewery is continuing its ambitious growth plans for their Head of Steam brand following the addition of a new venue in Hull.
The site of the former Purple Pig venue, located on Kings Street in the Trinity Quarter area of Hull will become the brewers 9th Head of Steam this summer.
Work will begin at the venue, which is currently closed, in mid-May and the brewery plan to open this towards the end of June. 14 new jobs will be created following the refurbishment of this site.
The Head of Steam, which is renowned for its selection of great beers, will have 12 keg lines with a selection of rotating craft beers from UK and world brewers, 8 cask ale lines including beers from the North East and the Yorkshire & Humber area plus a selection of premium cocktails, spirits and soft drinks.
Chris Soley, Chief Executive at Camerons Brewery, said: “We have been looking at a number of new locations to setup our Head of Steam brand and the East Yorkshire area was one location we were keen to explore. Hull is developing into a very vibrant city and with it achieving the prestigious honour of being the UK City of Cultural in 2017 we felt it was the ideal time to launch our brand here.”
“Camerons brands have always been well received in the area so we are delighted we can have a pub in the city to showcase these alongside the portfolio of great beers available in our Head of Steam pubs” Chris continued.
The news of the Hull development follows Camerons recent openings of Head of Steams in Headingley & Sheffield this April. The brewer continues to look for other potential venues in cities and major towns in the North of England to grow its retail pub estate.
