Happy New Year – January 2021

Welcome to Darwin Brewery 2021 and apologies for the large gap in posts, partly pandemic related, but also due to our busy brewing schedule. For more regular updates, please check our social media accounts on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram which have recently been our main communications platforms for information on beers and activities.

Needless to say, the last 10 months have been hugely challenging for all in the industry, but we are pleased to confirm that the Darwin delivery service is fully functioning and you can place your order through the website.  We aim to deliver within 48 hours of your order being placed and often within 24 hours.  If you are having difficulty with the website for any reason, you can also place your order via e-mail (info@darwinbrewery.com) or telephone (0191 549 9450).

Available beers are indicated on the web store, as individual bottles, case deals and as mixed cases.  If you have a SR, NE or DH postcode and would like reduced or free delivery add the promotional code NECASE1 for orders under £20 or NECASE2 for orders over £20 at checkout. If you would like to collect from the brewery, add the promotional code COLLECT at checkout and please give us a call to check when it will be ready and staff will be in.

Darwin Brewery will do our utmost to ensure your order is delivered or collected from the brewery in as safe a way as possible. For deliveries further afield we use a reliable carrier service to your door.

So what’s new and forthcoming?  Well, certainly the reappearance of some of our favourites, with bottlings of Extinction ale and a new brew of Wearside Monk happening soon, to complete our range of specialist beers in 330ml bottles. We continually experiment with new recipes and throughout 2021 we will offer some of these as occasional and one-off, limited edition beers.

Interested in a brewery tour?  Naturally, lockdown restricts visits to the brewery itself. ☹ However, following successful trials before Christmas, we will shortly be able to offer virtual brewery tours 😊.

Not just pictures of the brewery in operation but an on-line tour and combined tasting with beers delivered to you in advance and to taste on the night.  We may even be able to include live music to create that bar room ambience we all miss so much. Suitable as a present, a night out (ok in) or for a work or corporate activity.  Keep an eye out for news here or contact us via e-mail or phone to discuss.
