3 Best Craft Beer Bars in Newcastle
Craft beer drinkers in the Newcastle area are spoilt for choice these days. Once upon a time, you would usually need to travel some distance just to find one decent craft beer bar but now the city has become a craft beer lovers’ paradise. There are loads of great bars that have popped up over the last few years to cater for the fast-growing demand for good craft beers.
If you are planning a group trip to visit some of Newcastle’s excellent craft beer establishments, then it would be a good idea to look into the benefits of mini bus hire in Newcastle. No standing around waiting for taxis at the end of the night or struggling with public transport!
NOLA Craft Beer and Whiskey
We love funky modern bars and NOLA is a seriously hip place to relax with a fine craft beer. From its booth-style seating to the low-hang lighting, you will love the ambiance in this gem of a bar. Now enough about the decor, let’s talk about the serious stuff – the alcoholic beverage selection! As well as offering 16 independent craft beers on tap, they also have a whiskey selection to be proud of.
In addition to the awesome drinks available, you can find live music on a Thursday night and they also offer a very tasty menu if you want something to accompany your beer with.
Gilbert Street Hotel
In the southwest corner of Newcastle, you can find another fantastic craft beer bar in the shape of the Gilbert Street Hotel. Having recently undergone a refurbishment, the interior design in this place will impress you almost as much as the beer will! It also offers a beautiful beer garden to enjoy your drinks outside, plus an award winning food menu.
Head to their website and you will find a real-time tap list – how very useful and modern! Typically they will have around ten craft beers on tap with popular favourites including Stone & Wood 5.6% Pale Ale, Old Wives Ales 8.3% Weizenbock and Clare Valley Brewing Co. 6.9% IPA. Absolute craft beer heaven!
The Franklin Boutique Hotel
The Franklin Boutique Hotel is another highly rated craft beer bar. Not far from China Town, down on Franklin Street, this bar is a great place for group parties or just to sit and enjoy a nice craft beer of your choice. And there is a lot of choice for you to select from with fourteen taps in total, eight of which will be serving craft beer. Brought to you by the same people who set up the Hotel Wright Street, they rock the rustic look.
One of the popular quirks of this bar is that it serves ‘mystery beers’ in paper bags, so if you fancy being a bit daring with your beer choice, this is a fun way to enjoy your drinks. They also have a fun themed menu with lots of variations of hot dogs, a sharer called Franks Feast and your more gourmet style dishes including scotch fillet, duck leg curry and lamb bangers.
There are so many great craft beer bars to visit and so little time. You can make your plans easier by organising group travel to take you to any of these wonderful bars.
