Throughout the 18th century, the Delaval family owned a number of breweries across the region. The largest being the brewery at the former Glass Works in Seaton Sluice. Most are now lost, but the Brew House on the estate of Seaton Delaval Hall itself still remains.
Over the last year, we have pieced together some of the historic ales brewed by the family. From the original wells that supplied the water to the days of the week that brewing took place, the full history of Delaval brewing has been uncovered.
Long term our ambition is to re-establish the historic brewing traditions of the Delaval Family by returning a working brewery to the Brew House at the Hall.
