Breweries In The Local Government Authority area of Sunderland
11th May 2022: A number of changes are about to be implemented to the way we handle alternative names for breweries. It will take a week or so to fully transfer and update the current information which is stored in a very unmaintainable mannner.

We list 6 breweries in the Local Government Authority area of Sunderland. Of these, 3 are open breweries, 3 are closed breweries and 0 are otherwise categorised (see footnote).
