The Big Lamp Brewery has been in existence since 1982 and is the oldest micro brewery in the North East.
The building it now occupies was once a water pumping station servicing the village of Newburn. It had been closed down and out of service for many years and had subsequently become derelict. A brave decision was made to relocate the brewery to the run down site and at the same time try and save the listed building. The building was dismantled brick by brick, numbering each brick during the process to ensure that each brick was replaced in exactly the same place. The old water pumping station has been fully rebuilt and is now the home to the Big Lamp Brewery and the Keelman Pub. The brewery has expanded significantly over the years and now brews many regular and seasonal ales.
