Better get some extra beers & Giuseppe brewed!EXCITING NEWS 🥳🤩... we’re reopening our doors on 23rd July 2020! We’ve really missed you all and we can’t wait to welcome you back.

Visit info 👇
For everyone’s safety we’re introducing additional health and hygiene measures across the museum. Entry will need to be by pre-booked time slot for all visitors, including our Friends of Beamish members and Unlimited Pass holders. In early July, we’ll be announcing details of how to book tickets, including information about pass and membership enquiries – we’ll keep you updated.

We’ve been hard at work on our preparations for reopening and are working through the details of yesterday’s Government announcement. With a 350-acre site, this will take a little time, and we’ll be opening exhibits based on COVID-19 safety guidance. We’ll be keeping everyone up to date as we get ready to open our doors once again.

We just want to say a huge, heartfelt thank you to everyone for your support – it really means such a lot to us. We can’t wait to see you again at Beamish soon!

Did somebody say Heatwave? Perfect Summer beer on tap at the Brewery shop.

HEATWAVE USES A SMALL PERCENTAGE OF ROASTED BARLEY FOR COLOUR, TO PORTRAY THE HORIZON WHERE HEAT SCORCHED EARTH MEETS SUNSET SKIES, AND FIVE TYPES OF HOPS, FROM TRADITIONAL ENGLISH, TO NEW AND FRUITY, PLUS AN ADDITION OF PREMIUM GRADE VANILLA BEANS; THE RESULT IS A WARM COLOURED SMOOTH SUMMER BEER WITH TASTES OF LIGHT ROAST MALT, SPICE, AND GENTLE FRUIT SWEETNESS.

For Heatwave we asked Wylie to imagine a "Wuthering Heights" type scene circa 1800 and depict a "Femme Fatale" pausing reflectively whilst harvesting; set against a backdrop of oppressive summer heat, and fields of ripened barley... we've no idea why we asked for that but are delighted with the result!

TYNE 9

3.9% ABV HAND CRAFTED BLACK LAGER

Tyne 9® is a black lager and this has caused some confusion with drinkers’ expectations. It will not taste or present  like a dark version of a fizzy pint of keg lager. Tyne 9® is a traditional lager beer, more akin to a Munich Dunkel lager or a Schwartzbier. De-husked dark malt has been used sparingly to give the colour and introduce some coffee notes as delicately as possible, a small proportion of medium kilned grain adds maltiness; it is these flavours and the colour that convince some that it is a light stout or porter; however those tastes are also desirable in this style of lager and are intentional – we are delighted that this cask lager has created so much healthy discussion and interest.

 

Tyne 9® is best served in its presentation glass to deliver a black and white pint sensation, and allow the drinker to celebrate the football heritage and theatre; from Milburn to Shearer and on to present day; of the magnificent Newcastle United Strikers’ shirt and number.
