A microbrewery in the wilds
Join Wild Intrigue and First & Last Brewery Northumberland for a night like no other! Discover the award winning beers inspired by Northumberland’s wild landscape, before searching for some of the nocturnal wildlife that calls it home.
First & Last Brewery Northumberland is an award-winning, family run microbrewery based in Bellingham in the heart of Northumberland.
Explore the art of brewing as the passionate team share their skills and passion in crafting award winning beers, delving into the subtleties and characters of each. Much of the collection is not only made in Northumberland, but with Northumberland too! Using locally foraged and sourced ingredients, First & Last Brewery Northumberland craft beers to give you a real taste of this beautiful county.
Adding flavour to the story of this small rural brewery, you will have the opportunity to sample a collection of their sought-after beers.
The night doesn’t end there! You will embark on a guided bat safari to track down the much-misunderstood creatures of the night that share the local landscape with the brewery. With bat detectors in hand, you will be able to eavesdrop on a whole new world of ultrasound clicks, slaps and pops as the bats hunt for ‘breakfast’, and chat with each other as they emerge from their roosts.
By joining this Mini Exped you will be contributing to the conservation of bats, which have cruised our starry night skies for millions of years.
Many of the beers provided will be suitable for vegans. Non-alcoholic hot and cold drinks will be available for those not drinking alcohol on the night, and there will be the opportunity to purchase beers to take home after the brewery tour & tasting.
There are plenty of wild encounters to enjoy in northern England, explore Wild Intrigue’s full collection here.
We are proud to co-host Bats & Beers experiences with First & Last Brewery Northumberland.
