High House Farm Brewery, Matfen, Newcastle upon Tyne, Northumberland NE20 0RG



High House Farm Brewery is a micro-brewery (founded in 2003) on a 200 acre working farm in Grade 2 listed buildings, only half a mile from Hadrian’s Wall.  In July this year, we are opening a visitor centre incorporating a shop, café, function room, interpretation room and licensed bar. We carry out regular brewery tours for small and large groups.


Our brewery produces high quality single hopped real ale, made from our own finest farm grown malt, Northumbrian water and English hops.  We currently have five varieties, all named after our farm animals, that are fantastic quality, full of flavour, easy to handle and have won SIBA and CAMRA regional and national awards.

Sundancer – 3.6% ABV

Auld Hemp – 3.8% ABV

Nel’s Best – 4.2% ABV

Black Moss – 4.3% ABV

Matfen Magic – 4.8% ABV 

Our cask and bottled ales are sold in over 200 outlets through the North East, Borders, Cumbria and North Yorkshire.
