 Beer Exhibition

Coming soon! Beer: A history of brewing and drinking at Temple Newsam
24 March - 27 October 2018
Temple Newsam House


Explore Britain’s first national drink in an exciting new exhibition.

Do you know the difference between a small beer and stingo? Or that beer was sometimes used to treat illnesses?

We reveal the history of brewing and drinking beer at Temple Newsam for the first time. See objects from Leeds’s important collection of ceramics, and discover hidden parts of the house.

An exciting programme of events will be on offer throughout the estate, including tasting sessions.
