Ale and arty special is brewed for the occasion
Published at 09:13, Monday, 13 June 2011
ART lovers will be able to toast the success of this year’s Northumberland Art Tour with its own specially brewed real ale.
Artisan Ale has been brewed by Jarrow Brewery to coincide with the popular open studios event mounted by Network Artists in Northumberland.
This year’s tour – the 16th – takes place across the county over the four weekends between June 11 and July 3, and this year features 68 artists in 45 locations.
In addition to being invited into artists’ work places, visitors are also being encouraged to explore their own creativity through the numerous workshops that are on offer, and also to explore the Northumbrian countryside.
Artisan Ale is now available throughout the area.
Look out for the distinctive puffins on the pump clips, based on an illustration by Network member Sarah Farooqi!
You might also find yourself using a beer mat that gives details of the Art Tour opening days.
The fully illustrated, free Art Tour 2011 map is available from tourism outlets, libraries, pubs and shops.
It can also be downloaded from www.networkartists.org.uk or ordered from firstname.lastname@example.org

AT a public meeting in Wylam Institute it was decided to split the remaining money in the village's peace celebration fund between the village schools and a planned war memorial to the Fallen.
A brass plaque bearing the names of 19 former students who died in the Great War was to be erected in the Wylam Council Schools at a cost of £20 and £30 was to be donated to the war memorial fund.
