When searching for the perfect venue for a special occasion, it can be so hard to find a spot that’s unique and memorable… until now.

Introducing: Tyne Bank Brewery.

Whether you’re looking for a relaxed, rustic setting for your wedding, a drinking destination for a beer lover’s birthday, or a charming spot for your corporate event, Tyne Bank Brewery has it all under one roof.

Home on the outskirts of Ouseburn, this award-winning microbrewery is ideal for those looking for a quirky venue to host an event to remember. Inside the family-friendly and dog-friendly tap room, you can enjoy a freshly pulled pint from the selection of 16 taps and eight cask lines of Tyne Bank beers, as you take in a direct view of the brewery, seeing where all the malty magic happens.

And it’s not just beer the tap room brings to your special occasion. Here we can guarantee that you’ll have a barrel of laughs thanks to their fun activities on offer, which include beer pong, table tennis, football table, darts and an Xbox alongside their exciting schedule of live events all year around.

At the heart of Tyne Bank Brewery is their ethos ‘it’s what’s inside that counts’. And it’s not just the finest tasting beer inside their bottles they’re talking about, either. It’s everything from their rustic and industrial interior to their friendly team and the warm and welcoming vibes they bring inside their taproom – need we say more?

Here’s why you should book Tyne Bank Brewery’s tap room as your venue for your next event or celebration. You can thank us later.


As soon as you step foot into the taproom, we can guarantee the interior here will blow you away – and it’s not our beer goggles doing the talking. Although the brewery is open plan and spacious, the taproom has a cosy, warm and quirky feel.

From exposed brick walls to structural steel frames and plenty of industrial seating options spread both inside and outside, this is the perfect setting for a networking event, celebrating a speciation occasion or as a beautiful backdrop for a relaxed wedding.


Talk about a central location. Situated on the outskirts of Ouseburn, Tyne Bank Brewery is just a short walk from the Quayside, making it easily accessible for all your guests. Plus, there’s free parking at the rear of the brewery.

With a capacity of 220 seated and 420 standing, the tap room is housed in a 1400sq/ft area within the brewery, meaning you don’t have to worry about cutting down your guest list for your event. And if you’re lucky enough to host it on a warm day, Tyne Bank’s contemporary beer garden is a perfect spot in which to bask in the sun while sipping on your chilled pint. There’s honestly no better feeling.


It’s safe to say that Tyne Bank Brewery is a beer drinker’s paradise. With 16 taps and cask lines, you’re guaranteed to find Tyne Bank beers at their freshest in Tyne Bank’s tap room. But what makes Tyne Bank’s beer unique is that they stay close to their roots and keep their ingredients pure and natural.

From their much-loved favourite, Helix Lager, to a lemongrass and ginger ale and Toon Rouge (a cherry Belgian beer), Tyne Bank offers a wide range of beers available both on cask and keg that are sure to cater for all your guests’ tastes. And if they’re not a big beer lover, they’re sure to find something else in Tyne Bank’s extensive spirits and canned range to suit.


No matter what your age, a good ol’ bit of healthy competition can’t go amiss, right? Whether you’re keen to beat your boss or want to add an icebreaker into your event, Tyne Bank Brewery will make any occasion memorable thanks to their onsite activities.

From team-building through a round of beer pong or table football to setting out some intense scenes with a game of darts, table tennis or on the X-box, these fun-filled activities are bound to inject some fun into your event for all ages.


We can guarantee that Tyne Bank Brewery will spice your event up when it comes to serving food that’s available on weekends and for private events. With a Mexican-style menu complete with delicious, fully-loaded nachos, chilli-loaded fries and cheesy hot dogs, there’s something to tickle all your guests’ fancies, with vegan options for every dish, too.

Or, if you’re visiting Tyne Bank Brewery for one of their larger events (read below for more info) as part of your celebrations, you can expect to see a huge variety of street food vendors. We’re talking smoked BBQ food from Flying Pigz, German street food from Memories of the Black Forest and fish and chips from Frosty’s.

From free events with the likes of their monthly dog socials, baby socials and open mic nights, to ticketed events such as ‘Paint Along with Bob Ross’, life drawing sessions and quizzes, why not attend an event here to switch things up on your next night out?
