Build a unique taproom in the heart of the Ouseburn in Newcastle

by Reece Hugill in Newcastle upon Tyne, Tyne and Wear, United Kingdom

 New stretch target

  • Donzoko was started by me, Reece, 7 years ago, while working in the Ouseburn, serving pints of our Northern Helles. Since then we've ran our brewery from Hartlepool and Edinburgh, but its time to set up our home in Newcastle.

    We sell our delicious German style lagers in bars and shops from Tynemouth to Tokyo. However, we're most well loved in Newcastle, and want to build an amazing taproom to serve the community our foamy beers, from our new state of the art German brewhouse.

    The shell of the building on Stepney Bank, is being fitted out currently with our new brewery, but we want the taproom to be the best it can be for opening in Spring/Summer 2024, and I need your help!

    For donations over £25, there's great rewards that give you the chance to claim:
  • A bar tab, that we will add to the value of!
  • Beer and merch pack, with exclusive new beers, Stepney (NZ IPA) and Bank (European Pale), posted out to you.
  • Scampi fries gold card that gives you unlimited free crisps for life.
  • Brewday experiences to come and brew one of our beers with us!
