Is carefully handcrafted in our brewery, in Gateshead. Between the banks of the Tyne and the site of the old Federation Brewery you'll find our Head Brewer (John Stubbs) meticulously overseeing classics like Rivet Catcher or creating fantastic new brews such as Claspers Citra or Hopnicity Pale Ale.
The Brewery Tap
Whether it be a function, musical event or just picking up a gift, our Brewery Tap shop is open to the public. Relax in the snug and reminisce of days gone by or take it up a notch in the main bar. We'll be bringing you live music, food and drink events and much more....
The brewery is located next to the old Federation Brewery site in Dunston. It was established in 2016 and is a family run business. A lot of the initial equipment was purchased from the now defunct Jarrow Brewery. As time has gone on we have now purchased additional kegging and bottling equipment.
