Blackhill brewery is a 10 barrel plant operating out of a small industrial unit at Harelaw, near Stanley. Chris Graham is the owner and brewer. After an initial career as a miner (which no doubt gave him the inspiration for the names of his beers) he became a civil servant. However, office life didn't suit him, so he turned to what had been a hobby as the basis of a new career. After developing his brewing skills in his free time at a Cumbrian brewery, where he had contacts, he took the decision to set up his own brewery in 2012. He brews 'on demand' as well as regular beers, which he sells mainly in South Durham and North Yorkshire. He is committed to producing good, real ale and is always looking to produce beers with unusual ingredients, as well as his regular beers such as '70 Fathom' and 'Brass Thill'
