We're shaking off the shackles of January in style. On Saturday the 28th we invite you to our new monthly soiree and end of month blow out. We'll be celebrating all things crafty! Expect DJs, street food, art and of course... BEER!

We have FOUR new, exclusively brewed beers for CraftWorks. 
They are:

Mango IPA 4.1% - A sweet sessionable IPA with a blast of fresh mangos.

Panna Cotta White Stout 7% - A white stout brewed with lactose, oatmeal and lemon zest.

Ahtanum vs Citra. IPA 5.5% - This is one for you to decide. We brewed an IPA, divided it in half and dry-hopped them both. One with Citra hops and the other with Ahtanum, creating two distinctly different beers and you can decide which you prefer.

Street food this month comes from our good friends at the Fat Hippo, bringing one of the North Easts best burger joints to our front door, serving from 4pm till late.

Spinning the night away on the decks until late will be JOHN EDGELL and DAN MURRAY!

This Friday is our last gig of the year and it's going to be a big one!


"The four-piece specialise in dark, atmospheric build. Brooding baritone vocals only add to hints of The National, but in ‘If Dogs Could Talk…’, they throw themselves towards completely different territory in the space of four minutes. Structures collapse with the flick of a switch, and the group swing from elegant gloominess to hyperactive, twitching math-rock." - DIY

FFO: Frightened Rabbit, The Twilight Sad, Manchester Orchestra


"They are guitar-based indie-poppers who really know how to make songs ring-a-ding-ding and their latest three-tracker is flag-wavingly good." - The Crack

FFO: Radiohead, Wild Beasts, Dutch Uncles



"New single 'It's True' is another Real Estate-like mix of dreamy vocals and sumptuous, slightly fuzzy guitar licks. Holding it all together is vocalist Kev Curran’s intriguing lyricism. It’s a promising sign of things to come in 2017." - God Is In The T.V.

FFO: Real Estate, Turnover, Beach House
