New drinks menu!

As a locally based, independent group of restaurants, we’re firm believers in supporting our community. So when we thought it time for a little reshuffle with our drinks menu we knew we had to do it right.

We have spent time carefully selecting the best independent lagers, ales and ciders that will be the perfect accompaniment to our bangin’ burgers.

Allendale Brewery have been with us from the start and have proudly been brewing quality ales since 2006 from a historic lead smelting mill in Northumberland, near the borders of Cumbria and Durham. During the industrial revolution the mill would have formed the centre of the mining industry in the area and they try to reflect this heritage in the identities of many of their beers. 

They are also responsible for exclusively brewing our in-house beers Fat Hippo IPA and Hillbilly Lager.

Our next new bunch on board are our Scottish neighbours Stewart Brewing, founded in 2004 by Steve and Jo Stewart. An independent brewery based in Edinburgh, quickly establishing itself as one of Scotland’s most successful and reputable breweries. Over the years they have continued to innovate and develop, whilst upholding the traditional ethos of Edinburgh’s rich brewing history. 

Finally the local, popular Anarchy Brew Co. an award winning, small brewery committed to big flavours. Starting life in January 2012 amongst the rolling fields of the Northumberland countryside, their small team is dedicated to using only the finest ingredients to create increasingly forward thinking beers. 

You can head to Underground, Jesmond or Durham menus to see which of these great beers are available at your local Hippo.
