ABOUT

We produce beers across the spectrum. Inspired by traditional British, Continental and new wave beers, Daniel and Gemma McColl started brewing in spring 2017. Built on a foundation of quality and consistency, our beautiful little 20-barrel brewery in Teesdale, Co. Durham delivers beers across the North East and beyond.


OUR BEERS

With an initial fermentation capacity of 40 barrels we offer a core range of four archetypal British beers in their design, ingredients, production, flavours and aromas. But we cant wait to develop our range further - maybe something darker, stronger and malt focused, maybe a wee Continental brew. And always including an ever changing range of seasonals, limited releases and specialty beers.
