Tyne Bank Brewery Corporate Events a hit

Award-winning Tyne Bank Brewery bounces back from a challenging two years after working with Scaleup North East and expands its offering to hosting corporate events with some high-class businesses benefiting from the event space.

Craig Huntingdon from Scaleup North East began to work with Julia at Tyne Bank Brewery prior to lock-down, focusing on developing alternative propositions to drive footfall and build general awareness.  Following two challenging years due to Covid, the brewery and event space have now successfully put this experience to great use having identified a demand from businesses and professional services firms looking at different and exciting ways to bring teams together, especially if often working remotely.

Businesses such as SoPost, Ubisoft Reflections, and Vertu Motors have held events including post lockdown socials with live music, street food, and beer tasting as well as ever-popular brewery tours and even the occasional Bob Ross painting nights. In addition, other unique initiatives include the production of small run-size bespoke bottles for marketing purposes with clients such as Canning24, Guerilla, and Muckle Cycle Club designing their own labels.

Scaleup North East Partner, Craig Huntingdon, commented: “It is clear that post-Covid, there is a huge demand for events and experiences that bring teams together in a way that is engaging and exciting to ensure high levels of engagement, especially at a time when recruitment and retention are so critically challenging. Thankfully, Tyne Bank Brewery were able to deploy well-formed plans quickly having invested in developing these as part of their participation in the Scaleup North East programme.

“I am really confident that Tyne Bank Brewery are incredibly well placed to continue supporting those businesses looking for novel ways to bring teams together in such an exciting events space”

The building, which hosts vegan festivals, group painting sessions and live music, is also home to some stunning beers and open every Thursday through Sunday. https://www.tynebankbrewery.co.uk/
