In January this year a number of the Norths leading Independent Breweries met at the Palace of Arts in Newcastle (which is home to Wylam Brewery) and hatched a plan to collaborate in order to celebrate northern craftsmanship as part of the the Great Exhibition of the North which takes place in Newcastle and Gateshead this summer.
All the beers were brewed in collaboration and packaged at Wylam Brewery. After months of planning it is finally time to release the northern powerhouse brew series.
On Friday 22nd June a series of exclusive launch events will take place hosted by the collaborating breweries and will be the only place you can sample all eight beers on keg ever.
These events will also be the only place you can buy the eight box of cans on the launch weekend.
Breweries include : Black Lodge (Liverpool), Box Social (Newcastle), Buxton (Buxton), Cloudwater (Manchester), Hawkshead (Kendal), Magic Rock (Huddersfield),
Northern Monk (Leeds), Thornbridge (Sheffield), Wylam (Newcastle)
Exclusive pours of all eight beers on keg and can box launch at Magic Rock Tap from 1pm on Friday 22nd June – plus limited edition mixed case of all eight cans (please note this limited to two per customer)
