Blackhill Brewery Launch

I have been working hard this week to provide County Durham based micro Brewery, Blackhill Brewery, with a new website to replace the one page place holder that they were previously using.

The proprieter, Chris Graham, is a former miner and decided to open up a Brewery to offer 'Real Ales from the coal mines' and supplies around ten pubs in the north east of England and a number of pubs and festivals across the country.

The design was inspired by time I spent in County Durham in my late teens,
