Camerons Brewery

Established for over 150 years, the Lion Brewery is back in private hands since its purchase by Castle Eden Brewery in 2002, a move out of which the new Camerons Brewery was born.

As well as its major 500,000 barrel site, ther's a Mini Me on site, a 10-barrel micro called The Lions Den. Water is sourced from the brewery's own well, in operation since the Lion Brewery first opened for business in 1852, and the Scottish and Yorkshire barley is malted locally.

High House Farm Brewery

Unique in the area, High House Farm uses its own barley – duly malted, of course – in its beers. Within a mile of Hadrian's Wall, the brewery was set up in 2003, and is now in the ever-capable hands of Heather and Gary Scott. Variety is the name of the game, with 15 different ales in production, from 3.5% and 4.8%.

The Stables Brewery

Located in 24 acres of parkland on the Beamish Hall estate, you'll find the recently established Stables Brewery. Separated from the friendly pub simply by a glass wall, if you are there at the right time you might see brewer John Taylor in action – checking the malt, throwing in the hops… and tasting the new beer. Well someone has to!

Wylam Brewery

Having reached its 10th birthday in 2010, Wylam's beers are a regular fixture around the country. Taking Wylam's most famous son – George Stephenson – and his ground-breaking invention, the Rocket steam locomotive, as the inspiration for both the logo and a number of its key beers, it is perhaps fitting that Rocket is one of its most awarded brews.
