Initially owned by John Barras & Co in 1890 it formed one of the major breweries in the amalgamation that lead to the formation of Newcastle Breweries. Its main product was the non-real ale Newcastle Brown. It merged with Scottish Breweries in 1960 to form Scottish & Newcastle Brewery. During the 1990s this plant again brewed real ale brewing, Theakstons brands. However following the sale of these brands back to the Theakstons family, the brewery shut in 2004 with the remaining keg brands being transferred to Dunston Brewery.
