Wylam Brewery at Palace of Arts

Our home at the Palace of Art in Exhibition Park is the last remaining building from the 1929 North East Exhibition. The Exhibition was an ambitious project built to celebrate and encourage Craft, Art and Industry at the start of the Great Depression.

Having remained almost derelict for nearly a decade the building has sprung back to life as a fully operational working Brewery.

Alongside the Brewery there is a Brewery Tap, which is open to the public Thursdays to Sundays inclusive.

The Grand Hall plays host to Live Music, Weddings, Pop Up Events and more …

Please visit our Events page for up to date info.

Our Journey

Our Brewery has come a fairly long way since our founding fathers John Boyle & Robin Leighton pawed over their first malt bills and recipes in a potting shed in the village of Wylam, Northumberland.

Our brews are now enjoyed in quality pubs and bottle shops across the land and further beyond.

Finding us at the Palace of Arts is a walk in the park... quite literally!

We look forward to welcoming you… if you have any questions please feel free to drop us an email .
