Brand New T-Shirts.

Fresh off the press, our brand new hand printed Tyne Bank T-shirts are now in stock. Featuring an all new design and printed on a great quality fabric they look really stylish. Once again we had our T-shirts printed by Ink & Toil, a great local screen printer who specialises in band merchandise and uses only the best quality inks. The design is simple with our logo in grey on the front, and a 'line-up' of our beers on the back in a similar style to a band tour shirt.

They are available in Men's and Women's cuts in all sizes from small to XXL, with the colours of the text on the back switched round for a subtle difference between the Men's and Women's. At just £12.50 they are a bargain for a T-shirt of this quality.

To get your hands on one, pop down to the brewery shop Monday - Friday between 9 and 5, or if you can't make it you can pay over the phone and we can leave it at the Free Trade Inn for collection. We can also post them out for £15 if you can't make it to Newcastle.

Christmas Market Stall.

Tomorrow (Friday 5th) we will be holding a stall by Greys Monument as part of Newcastle Christmas Markets. We'll be selling our full bottled beer range from 3.7% Peloton Pale up to 6% Mocha Milk Stout, as well as our gift packs which make a great Christmas present. We can make gift packs up with any combination of 3 of our ales, or 2 ales and a glass.

We'll also have brand new hand printed T Shirts from Ink & Toil and lovely Tyne Bank Tote bags, plenty of choice for the discerning beer lover in your life.

In addition to our tasty beers, the market will also feature stalls from local producers selling:

"...home-made jams, delicious cakes and handmade chocolates. And once you’ve bought something scrumptious to eat, you can find special gifts such as scarves, leather bags, hand thrown pottery, woolly hats and jewellery."

Support local businesses this Christmas and join us this Friday in the centre of Newcastle to stock up on great gifts.

December Special - Chocolate Lime Stout.

After winning our on-line vote earlier in the Autumn, our Christmas special is finally here. This 5.4% stout has been brewed with 8 different malt varieties for a rich and complex body. We used real dark chocolate, cocoa powder and lactose sugar for a sweet, luxurious chocolate flavour. Late in the boil we added the zest of 100 limes for a citrus aroma and character, as well as a late hop addition of Nelson Sauvin, Kohatu and Motueka. Inspired by the classic boiled sweet, the beer has a light citrus aroma which gives way to a smooth and moreish chocolate flavour with the limes lingering in the finish.


Chocolate Lime Stout is available in keg and cask now, and is the perfect luxury beer to enjoy in the run up to Christmas. Grab a glass and let us know what you think.
