Craft Beer Passport UK has announced a partnership with Newcastle’s newest independent brewery, Full Circle Brew Co.

The Lanchester Group of businesses, based in County Durham, is poised to open a craft brewery and taproom in the Byker/Ouseburn Hoults Yard business village.

Passport Full Circle

FullnCircle founder and owner, Ben Cleary, said: “We’re looking to create a venue which captures the hearts, minds, and, more importantly, tastebuds of the local community.

“Our taproom will offer up to 20 taps, ten for our own beers, and ten for guest beers. We want to showcase as many local breweries and guest beers for collaborative reasons, and for variety, of course.

“We have decided to work with Craft Beer Passport UK as we are a new brewery and want to collaborate and work with as many great organisations as possible, and Craft Beer Passport UK is certainly one to watch!

“Offering deals on craft beer venues is a great concept and an awesome way to get customers into interesting venues, but also to try new beers they may have not tried before.”

Acknowledging that they are joining the Craft Beer Passport UK family late in the game, Full Circle Brew Co is offering a further incentive. Every passport holder who visits the taproom before December 31 will be entered into a special draw to win a prize that includes a private tour of the brewery, followed by a free flight of its core beer range, as well as a beer goody bag to take home. The winner will be announced in January.

Full Circle Brew Co will officially open to the public on Friday, November 29, with a launch party at the taproom. For more details, visit

With this partnership, Craft Beer Passport UK holders will now have access to 22 locations where they can enjoy discount.

Craft Beer Passport UK launched in June 2019, providing beer lovers with a well-priced way to explore the North East’s eclectic craft beer scene. Using their passport, a pass holder can choose one £2 craft beer, from a list of three, at participating locations across the North East, between June 1 and December 31. Craft Beer Passports are available for purchase online via and at select locations for £20 each.
