Titanic Brewery to reopen community pub in Lichfield this Summer

Titanic Brewery has confirmed the acquisition of a much-loved community pub in the heart of Lichfield, and will be reopening it under a new name this August.

Formerly known as The Pig, the pub located on Tamworth Street in the centre of Lichfield will become Titanic Brewery’s 17th location when it opens this Summer, and will go by a brand new name: The Beacon.

The name recognises Lichfield’s Beacon Park, a thriving community space that is also the home to a statue of the captain of the RMS Titanic, Stoke-born Edward John Smith.

“This pub has had various names over the years, and with this new chapter starting in the building’s history, it felt right to give the pub a new name.” explains Jonathan Wright, Titanic Brewery’s Head of Retail. “We asked local residents for their thoughts, and overwhelmingly they wanted something that recognised Titanic’s stewardship of the building, but also had a local link. “The Beacon” was the perfect fit, and we’re really excited to see this new name appear on the building in the coming weeks.”

The Beacon will be Titanic Brewery’s second location in Lichfield, after they opened one of their bod café bars on the outskirts of the city last July. The opening will create 12 new jobs, and local suppliers will also be used wherever possible.

On the bar will be some of Titanic’s most popular beers including Steerage pale ale and Plum Porter. They will be joined by a range of ever-changing beers from guest breweries both local and from further afield.

A selection of wines and spirits will also be available, alongside freshly-prepared rolls and other locally-produced bar snacks. There will also be regular live music performances, and there are plans for other events in the coming months.

“In our opinion, pubs play an essential role in keeping communities together and helping them to thrive” says Titanic Brewery Director Dave Bott. “We are privileged to have the opportunity to re-open the doors of this pub and welcome back local residents and visiting drinkers alike. A Titanic pub is a place where people can come together to enjoy great times with great beer, and we are certain that The Beacon will be no different.”
