About Wylam Brewery

Foreboding fables and thrilling folklore flood through the flavourful creations born inside the Newcastle-based Wylam Brewery. Wylam’s founding fathers, John Boyle & Robin Leighton, pawed over their first malt bills and recipes in the humble surroundings of a potting shed in the village of Wylam, Northumberland. Today, the brewery finds its home inside the resplendent surroundings of the renovated Palace of Arts – a space where art, culture and beer collide.

Wylam’s brews are leading the way when it comes to highlighting just how unique and engaging contemporary beer can be. No brew lacks conviction, yet they all go down without a fight. The uncompromising artwork and startling titles attached to their brews will undoubtedly grab your attention, while your first sip will transport you to intriguing and thoroughly satisfying flavour destinations you’ve never visited before.
