Based in Northumberland, near the borders of Cumbria and Durham, Allendale Brew Co was founded in 2006 and is run from a renovated Victorian Smelt Mill in the rugged North Pennines AONB, also known as England’s Last Wilderness. During the industrial revolution the mill would have formed the centre of the mining industry in the area and this heritage is reflected in the identities of the beers.
From simple roots brewing cask ale for the local market, Allendale is now a state of the art 20 barrel plant and has become the leading brewery in Northumberland, supplying craft beers to pubs and specialist shops throughout the North, from York to Edinburgh and beyond. They have built a reputation for brewing quality, consistent beers, from original favourites such as Pennine Pale, Wolf and Wagtail through to the expanding ‘Wilderness’ can range, using ingredients from all over the world.
Allendale Brew Co is a family run company, owned by Tom and Lucy Hick, alongside Head Brewer Neil Thomas, a trained chef, who are supported by a team of enthusiastic and hard-working staff with a passion for making great beer! The past decade has seen huge changes in craft beer production, with customers seeking many different styles, and Allendale has always moved with the times. Their continued growth has been boosted by numerous nationally and internationally respected awards.
A focus on quality, innovation and friendly service is what has made Allendale a household name in the North East and there is a beer for everyone in their extensive range.
