Our Beers

Our beers are like our bairns… 

We love them dearly and there’s a story behind each one! Our family is growing too, as we bring craft and good old-fashioned graft to every new brew. We believe there’s a beer for everyone. That’s why we’re breaking down barriers and working hard to create beers for all to enjoy.

If you are not yet sure what your favourite Brinkburn brew is, why not try one of our Beer Flights?  They are a great way to try our beers and find one that is suited to your tastes. 


Quayside blonde

Quayside Blonde

ABV: 4%

STYLE: Blonde Ale

Quayside Blonde has been developed by using our popular Byker Blonde as a base with additional Mandarin Bavaria and Pacifica leaf hops plus dry-hopping with US Citra pellets in the fermenter to give it an extra, satisfying hoppy linger. A great gateway beer for lager drinkers venturing into the craft beer world, Quayside Blonde shows our passion at Brinkburn St for well-hopped, balanced session beers.

Tyne Titans Circle

Tyne Titans

ABV: 4.2%

STYLE: Session IPA

A beautifully conditioned session IPA. A golden beer with a reddish hue. US leaf hops (Citra, Mount Hood, Simcoe, Willamette) followed by dry hopping with US Cascade pellets to give an unusually complex taste profile.


Ford Street IPA

ABV: 4.7%

STYLE: American Style IPA

Brewed with Centennial, Mount Hood, Citra and Amarillo then Dry hopped with Citra and Amarillo in the Fermenter, this American Pale Ale is wonderfully balanced and a real big hitter for its ABV. Full malt roundness combines with citrus, herbal and spicy hop character and aromas of passion fruit and lychee, leading to a drying finish.


Byker Brown Ale

ABV: 4.8%

STYLE: Brown Ale

It’s a balanced, malty and hoppy beer with chocolate and biscuit notes leading to a subtle, hoppy finish.

Geordie Pagoda

Geordie Pagoda

ABV: 4.8%

STYLE: American IPA

A light yet robust pale ale brewed with Sorachi Ace and Azacca hops to provide a wonderfully balanced and refreshing citrus taste with a hint of coconut and floral flavours. This beer is named after the oriental-gothic style pagodas on the top of our office building on Albion Row, Byker. A stylised Japanese pagoda (a Geordie pagoda) as per those on the Ouseburn School building is shown on the bottle label and pump clip. The school was built in 1893 with, its rumoured, hefty donations from industrial giants, Armstrong and Vickers, who were trying to impress the Japanese Navy who visited Tyneside with a view to buying battleships with steam generators. We like to think we’ve continued the link between Newcastle and Japan by using Sorachi Ace hops in Geordie Pagoda.


Homage to Mesopotamia

ABV: 5.2%

STYLE: Shiraz Grape & Honey Porter

Homage to Mesopotamia (5.2% abv) is a luxuriant porter with late additions of Shiraz grape juice and honey to balance the chocolate malt. Dedicated to the pioneers of beer making, The Women of Mesopotamia, the label includes an image of Ninkasi, the Sumerian Goddess of Fermentation.

little house

Little House of the Rising Sun

ABV: 5.5%

STYLE: Chocolate & Raspberry Porter

This version of our luxurious House of the Rising Sun porter range is an easy-drinking session beer with an ABV of 5.5%. The bitterness of the chocolate malt is balanced with raspberry fruit and essence (added in the kettle and fermenter) that produces a chocolatey/raspberry porter strangely reminiscent of the Raspberry Ruffle sweets your grandma used to buy.


Hop Gremlin

ABV: 5.6%

STYLE: Very Hoppy IPA

A golden, ultra-hoppy IPA with a high IBU (55).

Complex tropical fruit tones, from four types of US leaf hops and two types of hop pellets, leads to a dry, hoppy linger.

Hop Gremlin is our most hop-laden beer to date (with the highest ‘face-twistiness rating’) and is one for the hop-heads, “It’s Stone Radge* Man!”

*Stone Radge – A Translation from Geordie: Something that is extremely amazing, shocking or mental (not in the psychological sense).

‘Stone’ being used to emphasise (as in very) the word ‘radge’, used in this context as incredible. (Words by landofnor Nov 02, 2010).
