The Miners Arms has served over nine hundred real ales since counting started.
When choosing a special real ale to bring in, always for the weekend and typically for special occasions we select interesting and varied ales from all over the country. The local region has a wealth of micro breweries and naturally favourite special beers emerge from them. Our specials reflect this taste and a favourite regional brewery bitter will feature nearly every month.
The Miners Arms favourite pint is ‘Yates Bitter’ from Yates brewery of Cumbria. Yates is a golden hoppy full bodied bitter.
Wylam Brewery provide ‘Wylam Bitter’, which is amber with good bitterring and malt with a Fuggles finish & Gold Tankard
Matfen Brewery provides: 'Auld Hemp' & 'Nels Best'
Yates Brewery provides: 'Yates'
Guest Ales are introduced each weekend from local breweries
The Miners Arms supports the charity fundraising efforts of the Tynedale Beer Festival, sponsoring an ale every year and sampling the others.
These are our fine selection of regular ales which provide something for all real ale lovers.
