Fresh on the back of scooping two awards (Tourism & Leisure and Commercial) at the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) North East awards, Wylam Brewery has announced its latest development project.

The brewery, with its headquarters in Exhibition Park, Newcastle, is transforming a plot of land at Hillgate Quays that nestles under the Gateshead end of the Tyne Bridge, into By The River Brew Co, a shipping container community featuring independent operators which will open in time for the Great Exhibition Of The North.

Original plans to build a garden-come-leisure destination on the site were scrapped last month, after the ambitious scheme hit problems. The new village – set to remain in place for four months – will create employment for more than 100 people in a microbrewery, tap room, restaurant, hawkers’ market, street food specialists and custom-build bike and coffee shop, among other attractions.

More information will be released by signing up to www.ByTheRiverBrew.Co
