Great Newsome Brewery is situated on the East Yorkshire Coast close to the City of Hull and is run by the Hodgson family at Great Newsome Farm. The brewery first brewed in May 2007, following extensive research on the local and regional real ale market and people’s growing awareness of locally produced food and drink. The brewery has continued to grow since then from offering two real ales to begin with to now offering at least five cask beers and five bottle beers at any one time. This is supplemented by regular cask swaps with a number of other like minded breweries nationwide. The brewery now regularly delivers direct to pubs, farmshops, restaurants and clubs throughout Yorkshire and North Lincolnshire

They supply more than 600 pubs across West Yorkshire and the north of England, and are pleased to be part of Hull Beer Festival for another year




Wold Top Brewery was founded in 2003 by arable farmers Tom and Gill Mellor. Based high on the Yorkshire Wolds where the hills roll down to the North Sea, it is a family business that prides itself on brewing superior quality beer from home grown barley and water that is gently filtered by the chalk of the Yorkshire Wolds and drawn from the farm's own borehole. We use traditional methods and recipes to brew real ales with character. Find the beers in local pubs, shops and restaurants and the bottles in both independent and national retailers.
