For the love of beer

This time to me is a quiet release, It’s a hug and a handshake, a break and belief. In gathering together with people we trust,We all take a moment to remember and fuss. Sit back and smile and wonder — Stand up and laugh about blunders. Lean a bit closer and gather round beer, Making a case that you all have to hear. “Another”, is cried from across the bar, It’s gusto, it’s guts, it’s all taste and heart. So, create those moments around you, When building big plans with a nice view. Bring me a sonnet, a song, and my wallet, I love it when beer is the right brew.

THE SONNET 43 STORY

Sonnet 43 Brew House
is a new micro-brewery producing craft beer that is all taste and all heart.

Located in North-East England at Coxhoe, Co. Durham, we have taken our modern brewing philosophy and strong brand identity and fused this with local culture and history.

Sonnet 43 ‘How do I Love Thee?’ is the best-known work of poet Elizabeth Barrett Browning, who was born and raised in Coxhoe Hall; we took her words and expressed it our way: craft beer.

Using only the best ingredients with traditional brewing methods enables us to produce remarkable, high-quality cask beers that deliver a real taste experience to be savoured and enjoyed.
