If you're a craft ale lover, then you're in the right place! Newcastle may be known for its nightlife scene, but it also has a thriving real ale and craft beer offering with loads of mirco-breweries and pubs serving local ales. Have a read of our favourite places to go for a fantastic real ale in the city, and let us know your recommendations in the comments!
The Box Social
The Box Social is a fantastic 6 barrel micro-brewery hidden in the railway arches on Forth street. It's small selection means it can change the seasonal beers on offer much more regularly than other bars, so every time you go it's a new experience! If you fancy learning a little more about your favourite drink, then try our the Box Social's Beer Tasting Experience for 2, and get it for less with StreetAway!
Bacchus is a regular feature in the CAMRA's Good Beer Guide, and it's easy to see why! With a huge selection, showcasing the best of local and international ales, it's been a favourite of local beer lovers for a long time. It's in the perfect spot if you're looking for a place for some after work drinks, or for a pint before the match, just a couple of minutes walk from the Monument. Make sure you add Bacchus to your 'to visit' list!
Relatively new to the Newcastle food and drink scene, Beeronomy is already making waves! They specialise in pairing good food with good beer, and they get it spot on. Their menu makes recommendations for each dish, and we think you should listen to them. Roast Cod and a Pilsner, or Venison Salami and a Belgian Dubbel - if you're on the look out for a place that serves their craft ale with a side of delicious food, this is where you need to be!
Of course, this list wouldn't be complete without mentioning the powerhouse that is Wylam Brewery! They hold loads of fantastic events through the year, but their tap room is open independently, and is the perfect spot for some after work drinks. The 30 barrel micro-brewery serves the freshest Wylam Beers on Keg and Cask, as well as some exclusive brews and blends!
