GNEB Scoop Newcastle Beer Crown

April 11, 2019

We are delighted to announce that our newest ale GRAPHITE BLACK IPA 4.6% has won at the prestigious 2019 Newcastle Beer Festival. 


The fruity ale with slight toasted notes beat off stiff competition from several other local ales in the "Battle of the Beers" to win the DARK IPA category.



Our delighted Head Brewer John Stubbs said on receiving the award "We are delighted to receive this award and would like to thank Tyneside & Northumberland Camra and the brewery's supporters who have got us where we are today. Id like to send a special thanks to our development brewer George Thomson who is an absolute pleasure to brew beside with his uncanny ability to develop new innovative recipes".


This success has come hot on the heels of our 2nd place finish in the competition in 2018 with the beautiful orange citrus pale ale DELTA. 


Lets hope this award is the first of many!


Both Graphite Black IPA & Delta APA are on sale now subject to demand.
