Foghorn - Foghorn Brewery was born of a dream to make craft beer the way it ought to be made—from grain to glass all under one roof.

And so it was that Newcastle’s first modern craft brewery opened its doors in April 2015. The town’s industrial roots have played a big part in shaping the unique character of Foghorn Brewery. Built from the ground up, this art deco era warehouse with exposed roof trusses now houses a custom 1800 litre brewery.
