Wylam Brewery

About Wylam


Situated along the river Tyne, in the heart of Newcastle in the opulent, Grade 2 listed Palace of Arts, Wylam can certainly lay claim to the title of the UK’s most picturesque brewery. The beer’s pretty special two, with Wylam having evolved over 20 years from a pure cask brewer into one of the leading lights of the British craft beer scene. Signature IPA Jakehead is no doubt a part of this, combining an old world malt bill with a new world hop profile to delight traditional drinkers and craft beer fans alike. Wylam Brewery’s dedication to collaboration also shows their commitment to building a spirit of community in craft beer and has endeared them to breweries from all over the world.
