Established in 2016 in Elsdon, the heart of Northumberland. The First & Last is an award winning, family-run, microbrewery. We brew small batch cask-conditioned and bottled beer. Our beers are inspired by the wild, untamed landscape and starry skies of Northumberland.

“We like our beers to link to Northumberland, either in name or ingredients, preferably both. Whenever possible we like to make beers not just in, but with Northumberland”


Finest quality malts, water and hops are critical to creating excellent beer. Equally important to us is the quality of the relationship we have with you.


Brewing is part science part art. We enjoy being creative. We hope you enjoy the results.


Northumberland inspires us. We’re always looking for ways to reduce our impact on this wild landscape and the wider environment.

The First & Last Brewery is born out of a passion for brewing, a love of great beer and a commitment to the highest standards in customer experience and environmental responsibility.
As a family-run business, we believe in living life to the full and contributing to the community that we live in. We also like having as much fun as we can along the way.
