A visit to the palace

The Palace of the Arts, the new home of Wylam Brewery, was the venue for the North East Brewers Market this weekend. Billed as a coming together of the North Easts Brewing Scene, visitors enjoyed Craft Beer, Street Food & Music… and relished sampling from the many pop up bars from ourselves and our friends at Credence, Errant, Mordue, Out There, Truefitt, and special guests Cloudwater (Manchester).

Apart from favourites, Silver Dollar, Cherry Stout, and Northern Porter, drinkers were keen to sample our Summer specials, Summer Breeze, and Sorachi Dollar... but the undoubted star of the show was.... Strawberries and Cream extra pale ale. 

If you haven't tried it yet, you really should!

Quintessentially British - Beer and Strawberries and Cream

Tyne Bank Brewery has teamed up with a food rescue company to produce their latest beer. Strawberries and Cream extra pale ale has been created in collaboration with Ugly Duckling, a company that dedicates itself to the rescue and supply of misshapen and aesthetically challenged fruit and vegetables that wouldn’t normally find a way into the food chain.

Tyne Bank Brewery owner, Julia Austin said:
“A pallet load of beautifully ripe strawberries arrived at the brewery this week and our brewers have been hard at work creating one of our signature products. The fresh ingredients in our beers are what sets us apart from our competitors, and to collaborate with Ugly Duckling means that we are able to use fabulous local tasty produce… and our social conscience remains intact too”.

This quintessentially British brew is produced as Wimbledon reaches its finale, (and hopefully in time to see Andy Murray lift the trophy), at 3.8% abv, Strawberries and Cream extra pale ale carries serious flavour. Using lactose and vanilla for a sweet and creamy base, and of course adding a crazy amount of lovely fresh strawberries – truly delicious!

The perfect English Summer beer, refreshingly fruity and morishly sweet.The ideal mid-afternoon treat on a hot summer's day.

Exciting news to announce......

We have some exciting news to announce.....
Julia Austin our Managing Director has written an open letter explaining more about our plans.

Hi, I’m Julia, founder of Tyne Bank Brewery. 

Back in 2006, while working as a Chemical Engineer, I took a trip to British Columbia where I experienced a craft beer scene way ahead of where we were in the UK.  The skills, passion and knowledge evident amongst these breweries and tap rooms fuelled my dream to open my own brewery.

Five years later in 2011 Tyne Bank Brewery was born and our ambition and ethos has always been based on those early experiences.  We aim to combine local passion with the best ingredients available globally to ensure we maximise the flavour for every product we produce. It’s what we put into it that guarantees what you get out of it. 

I am extremely proud of what Tyne Bank Brewery has achieved. We have several awards; notably Summer Breeze which recently won gold in class and silver overall in the 2016 National SIBA keg awards and Silver Dollar, our American Pale Ale which won gold in class in 2014.  Our Monument, an English bitter was awarded the top 3 Gold Stars in the Good Food Guide’s Great Taste Awards and furthermore it was rated in the Top 50 of 10,000 food & drink submissions across all categories in 2015.

Because of our success we now need to relocate to larger premises.

Rather than merely moving to a larger site, we wish to take maximum advantage of the new opportunities that the unprecedented thirst for craft beers are bringing.

Firstly Artisan produced beer is no longer exclusively “cask conditioned” and served via a handpull. The craft-keg revolution is now firmly established whilst high-end beer connoisseurs now favour the can to ensure their beer is in the freshest condition.

Secondly, drinking at the brewery “tap” has never been more popular and we would love to engage with our customers in our own tap house and events space enabling us to showcase our products and offer a great bar experience in an industrial setting.

After a lot of research we have found a large characterful leasehold premises a stone’s throw from the existing brewery and at over four times the size of our current unit it is perfect to put our exciting plans in place. 

So here’s what are we planning;
·         To refurbish, relocate and expand the brewery.
·         To install the north east’s first canning line with flexibility to also bottle and keg
·         To open a brewery craft tap house along with a unique events space.

The next step in our journey will be expensive and so we need investment. 

We are independent and proud of it, with a strong desire to build a solid, multi-faceted craft brewery business.   We want to share the journey with people that will help us grow and are passionate in making Tyne Bank Brewery one of the North’s most progressive craft breweries.

We want all our investors to become part of our DNA.

From £10 to £50,000 we’re offering the opportunity to invest and own an equity stake in Tyne Bank Brewery and in return we offer our shareholders a unique experience, ensuring they are truly engaged with us and most definitely enjoying the ride.
