Our ginger ale started out in 1896, created by John Henry Bryant in Québec’s Eastern Townships. Mr. Bryant, who was originally a beer brewer with partner Seth Nutter at the Silver Springs Brewery on Abenakis Street in Sherbrooke, found there was too much competition for that type of beverage and so decided to come up with an original drink for his own family business. Inspired by his Irish roots and through much trial and error, he created a rich, Belfast-type ginger ale with an original flavour. His wife, inspired by her husband’s stubborness, suggested he call the drink Bull’s Head and the name stuck.

"In 2006, the Husk brothers bought Bull’s Head and it’s in November 2009 that the Pearson brothers, Carl and Dominic, with our Sherbrooke partner, Charles Martel bought the rights and recipe for the legendary ginger ale. In 2012, Bull’s Head developed a Ginger Beer based on the suggestion of one of their loyal customers. This product is now very popular, especially when making Shandy Gaff, a blend of our ginger beer and a blond beer, which is a very popular golf after-game drink. In 2014, Bull’s Head innovated again with two new products, a Diet Ginger Ale and a Ginger Spruce Beer. These new products will allow the company to enter new markets in Quebec."
