Tickets are on sale in the ‘bus.

Bus to Wellington

After a lot of thought, we decided to ask the Yard of Ale brewery to brew us another house beer.

We left the octopus theme from the first three house beers behind, with our new NZ Pale.

It’s going down so well that we’re already on our seventh cask (of eight).

Beer by bus

The guys at Go North East have produced a cool as anything Beer By Bus leaflet.

The leaflet shows you how to get to the best craft beer bars in Newcastle and Gateshead by bus. Save your legs, catch a bus.


So a German guy and a Brazilian guy cycle into a bar. Our little bar.

The German guy’s a regular, a lovely bloke. He met the Brazilian guy cycling across the Tyne Bridge. And brought him to the ‘bus.

The Brazilian guy had cycled 33k miles before arriving here.

He asked if there was anywhere he could sling a hammock.

So our lovely customers had a whip round and he stayed at the Hilton.
