Victorian Britain was thriving. The ever expanding Empire had brought overseas trade, commerce and culture to the nation, and this new untold wealth had cities flourishing. Descend into the darkest areas of these cities though, and a dangerous and forbidden world of vice and corruption emerged. Hidden deep in the grotesque labyrinthine twist and turns of these dark and dirty alleys, lay the public houses, pubs and inns of the Rookeries, with a disreputable reputation as dens of drinking, betting, debauchery, dancing and sexual assignation. These citadels of vice and crime harbored the thieves and whores, the disgusting and the degenerate, where immoral conversation passed, unlawful schemes were plotted, and the ale flowed into the lawless jungle awash with crooks and convicts.
Welcome to the Flash House.
Nestled on a hill overlooking the River Tyne, surrounded by workshops and fishmongers, Flash House Brewery opened the doors to our North Shields home in April 2016. From our 5bbl Plant, only a stones throw from the revitalised Fish Quay, we brew small batch, expertly crafted world beers in the old heartland of the industrial North East.
The time has come!
We've only gone and stuck a bar in our brewery, haven't we. That's right, we have a bar in our brewery. So come down as we open the doors every other Saturday to our Tap Room.
We'll have a range of our beer to enjoy in Cask, Keg, Can, and Bottles.
Hope to see you there!
These are our regulars, our best selling core ales that we'll keep on coming back to brew. Give us a shout if you'd like to stock one of our favourites and we'll get a cask or two sent over for you.
IRON GIANT IPA
COFFEE MILK STOUT
IRON DWARF PALE
Occasionally we like to experiment with our ales, or bring back a forgotten favourite. We might brew a batch, and once it's gone it's gone, or we might store the recipe away for a rainy day to brew again. Either way, we'll try and keep you up to date below with our plans for our guest ales, and remember to let us know which ones you enjoy, so we don't accidentally misplace the formula.
So here's what we've got brewing at the moment...
TINY DANCER PALE ALE
Cinnabun PALE ALE
