The Jarrow Brewing Company, or Jarrow Brewery, is an English brewery.


The brewery was established at The Robin Hood Public House, Primrose, Jarrow in 2002 by owners Jess and Alison McConnell.[1] The brewery at first supplied two pubs, The Robin Hood itself, and The Albion Inn, Bill Quay, also owned by Jess and Alison.[2]

Trade picked up very quickly and soon a deal was struck up with beer distributor Flying Firkin to supply other pubs nationwide with the beer. Beers produced include "Jobling's Swinging Gibbett", a 4.1% copper coloured ale and "Old Cornelius", a dark strong ale at 4.8%, named after Cornelius Whalen, the last surviving Jarrow Marcher.[3] Jess and Alison McConnell have more recently opened the "Westoe Brewery" at "The Maltings" public house in South Shields.[4] Brewing ceased at the Robin Hood in Summer 2008.[5]
