The name “The Consett Ale Works” harks back to a time when Consett was the industrial heart of the North East, producing steel for a number of noteworthy projects around the UK and their real ales are no different. The names of most of their ales are related to processes which were involved in the manufacturing process of steel. With names such as ‘Molten Ale’, ‘Red Dust’ and ‘Blast Bitter’ it’s easy to see that this microbrewery is proud of its local heritage. In the very first edition of the Consett Magazine (2012), we wrote about the great beer being poured right here in our town. Read that historic beer lovers’ article here.
