The "Northern Craft Brewers" are a group of like-minded brewers who meet quarterly at various locations around the Lancashire - Yorkshire area, usually at venues close to convenient transport links.


Founded in October 2000 the group was formed with the aim of lifting the craft of brewing beer at home to the highest level possible. We are dedicated to producing beers that are at the very least as good as those found in Pubs and at Beer Festivals.We offer a warm welcome to home brewers of any standard, beginners and experts alike, who wish to attend our meetings.


About Us

We have a wide range of experience within our group and can offer good sound advice, to anyone wishing to learn how to brew great beer from raw ingredients, we have some true artisans among our group and a few of us have moved on from craft brewing at home to running micro breweries.


Do come and join us if you’re interested in furthering your craft brewing skills.


We hold regular meetings throughout the year, and our meetings are run with agendas that promote our craft. Our meetings regularly include Topic Talks, Guest Speakers from the trade, Craft related visits and Competitions.


Northern Craft Brewer meetings encourage members to bring their beers along for sharing and discussion particularly to encourage the development of members brewing skills.
