Arise Sir North

In January this year, a number of the North’s leading independent breweries met at Wylam Brewery’s Palace of Arts headquarters and hatched a plan to collaborate in a celebration of northern craftsmanship as part of the Great Exhibition of the North now in full swing until September 9.

All the beers were brewed in collaboration and beautifully packaged at Wylam Brewery which created such an interest that virtually every case was presold. Here are the results.

Northern Powerhouse Brew Series

001: Wylam/Buxton Chocolate Chip Vanilla Imperial Stout (10.1% abv)

002: Wylam/Cloudwater Strong Brown Ale (6.3% abv)

003: Wylam/Black Lodge Mixed Fermentation Farmhouse with Apricot, Peach, Mango (7.5% abv)

004: Wylam/Thornbridge American Wheat with Jasmine Flowers, Orange Peel (5.5% abv)

005: Wylam/Magic Rock Forrest Fruit Kettle Sour with Blackberry, Blackcurrant, Raspberry (4.5% abv)

The strapline with the collection reads: “The North Will Rise Again”. You bet.
