The Sonnet 43 Story

The Lambton Worm, Chester le Street, is the brewery tap for Sonnet 43 Brew House, a new microbrewery producing craft beer that is all taste and heart.

Located in North-East England, we have taken our modern brewing philosophy and strong brand identity and fused this with local culture and history. Sonnet 43 ‘How do I Love Thee?’ is the best-known work of poet Elizabeth Barrett Browning, who was born and raised in Coxhoe Hall; we took her words and expressed it our way – craft beer. Using only the best ingredients with traditional brewing methods enables us to produce remarkable, high-quality cask beers that deliver a real taste experience to be savoured and enjoyed.
