It's nearly party time!

Preparations are coming along nicely for our 3rd birthday party this Friday. We've build a bar, pies are ordered and beer is racked and ready. There's still plenty to do though, and we're busy tidying up ready for the big night. 

Everything kicks off at 5pm on Friday with a great selection of cask, keg and bottled beers, traditional cider, soft drinks, and our experimental hopped gin! We're really excited, its set to be a good night. Hope to see you here on Friday.

Whitley Bay Rockcliff RFC Beer Festival.

This weekend, Rockcliff Rugby Club in Whitley Bay are hosting a beer festival, featuring around 60 different ales from across the country. We have brewed a beer especially for the festival, taking inspiration from a beer which Northumbria University's Ale and Cider Society brewed with us recently, a blood orange IPA. This one off cask brewed on our test kit weighs in at a powerful 6.7%, and is brewed with a blend of US and New Zealand hops to compliment the bold citrus flavours of the blood oranges. It will only be available at the festival and when its gone, its gone. 

There will a great selection of Tyne Bank beers available, alongside beers we have supplied from our friends at Revolutions Brewing Co, Dark Star and Hand Drawn Monkey amongst many others from both local and national breweries.

There is a VIP evening on the Thursday night, with the festival opening to the public at 4pm on Friday with live music, and from 12 on Saturday. All the details are in the poster above, make sure you head along and enjoy some great beer. Full beer list can be found here.

We will also be providing the club with a house beer, so fans and players can now enjoy a tasty, locally brewed ale after the match.

3rd Birthday Party.

On Friday 30th May we celebrate our 3rd Birthday, and we're throwing a party! Come and join us at the brewery for an evening of great beer, food and live music.

We're throwing open the brewery doors and you're all invited. There will be a pop up bar serving a selection of our cask and keg ales, including some rare treats all at very reasonable prices. We will also have some delicious keg beer from our friends at Hand Drawn Monkey, and a selection of traditional ciders for those who prefer something fruity. The Amble Butcher is providing a choice of tasty pies both meaty and meat free, to help soak up all the lovely booze so you can enjoy the whole evening with us.

We are really happy to have live musical entertainment from the fantastic Holy Moly and the Crackers. This great local band will be finishing their spring tour at our party with their infectious and unique sound. They "are influenced by an eclectic range of styles and artists; the honest grit and gravel of Woody Guthrie, the gypsy bone-cage burlesque of Gogol Bordello, the spectral clarity of Joni Mitchell. As such they play a moonshine mix of Romani, Americana and contemporary British folk - rock." In other words, the perfect band to dance to with a few beers. Check them out here.

We really hope you can join us, it's set to be highly enjoyable evening. Friday 30th May, from 5pm at the Brewery.

Tyne Bank at Newcastle Airport

Planning your summer holidays? Newcastle airport's new bars are now up and running, with a new focus on quality beer. The brand new 'Beer House' bar is part of a £14 million redevelopment and features both our cask and keg products permanently available, with the cask rotating to provide a good variety for travellers. The Flying Hippo American style diner also stocks our ales, so your holiday this summer can now begin with a lovely pint of Tyne Bank cask ale, or perhaps our award winning Silver Dollar on keg while you wait for your flight.
