For one weekend only, over 50 of the leading craft breweries from all corners of the globe assemble under one roof providing an interstellar selection of 200+ National and International cask and keg beers. The Festival, hosted against the industrial backdrop of Newcastle’s Boiler Shop will feature not only “Meet The Brewer” sessions, an artisan cider cellar, gin bar and street food market but will be sound tracked into the evening by world class DJ’s including special guests Greg Wilson and Mr. Scruff.
“Many more breweries to be added and announced…and some unexpected extra surprises.”
The International line-up will be joined by National and Local favourites;
National: Beavertown, The Kernal, Five Points, Magic Rock, Camden Town, Thornbridge, Wild Beer Co, Weird Beard, Tiny Rebel, Harbour Brewing Co, Burning Sky, Redchurch, Hawkshead, Liverpool Craft Beer Co., Hanging Bat Brewing Co and Adnams.
Regional: Wylam Brewery, Allendale, Tyne Bank, Three Kings, The Bridge Tavern, Big Lamp, Jarrow, Durham, Mordue,Truefit, Out There, Anarchy, Two By Two Brewing and Northern Alchemy.
Over the full weekend visitors are invited to enjoy a cracking craft beer in one hand and some fine street food in the other, the hawker market bringing the same high quality and passion as the carefully selected beers; a taste of international street cuisine.
In addition to the ale’s, beers and scran, some of the weekend’s highlights include the city’s Suono celebrating their 10th Anniversary– Special guest and disco pioneer Greg Wilson joins Suono founding father “586” for what is set to be the ultimate Balearic journey. Sunday’s Craft Beer Calling closing party (try saying that after a couple of 7% ABV IPA’s 😉 will be kept unreal by the one and only Mr. Scruff with a legendary 5 hour set.
