Tyne Bank Brewery, a new 20 barrel plant, has been opened in the North East of England. Based in Ouseburn, Newcastle, Tyne Bank Brewery is the brainchild of former chemical engineer Julia Austin, and has been established on the site of the old Hadrian & Border Brewery.

Julia Austin moved into the premises, in Hawick Industrial Estate, Byker, in May and has been busy creating three brand new beers along with head brewer Mark McGarry, formerly of Mordue Brewery. The two are currently perfecting Monument Bitter (4.1%), pale ale Castle Gold (3.9%) and a special American pale ale, Silver Dollar (4.9%).

Julia Austin was inspired to set up Tyne Bank Brewery after visiting Granville Island Brewing in Vancouver, Canada. In January 2011 the opportunity to take voluntary redundancy from her job as production manager at Arizona Chemicals prompted Julia Austin to purchase the assets of Hadrian & Border which was moving to a new site, and Tyne Bank Brewery was born.

Tyne Bank Brewery has a distribution deal with drinks specialists Kuehne + Nagel which allows it to deliver anywhere within the North East region. Tyne Bank Brewery aims to sell the ales to independent pubs, wholesalers, chains, private individuals and event organisers.
