Situated close to Hadrian’s Wall in Northumberland, Muckle Brewing has a reputation for high quality ales and big flavours. The ales have been influenced by the local landscape and natural features. The best grains and hops are selected to create layers of flavour, a strong head and refreshing taste. The whole artisan process of brewing, bottling & labelling is carried out in the garden brewery before packaging and delivery to stockists. This supports a minimum of transportation and a high level of quality control. A dedicated team of taste experts carry out the most important job!
The micro-brewery run by Tom and Nicola Smith produces bottle and cask conditioned ales ranging from American and pale ales to the rich Muckle Moss Stout. A best seller is Whin Sill Blonde where the ancient hot rocks brewing technique uses pieces of whin stone heated to 300 degrees. Other favourites are Muckle Tickle golden ale, a traditional English bitter; and Muckle Chuckle American hopped amber ale.
You will find Muckle ales and gift packs at Farmers Markets in Hexham, Greenhead, Bellingham, and Morpeth where the team will be happy to share their knowledge and advice while choosing your beers.
