Poetic License! April 15, 2015

Sonnet 43 Brew House are delighted to announce that after much renovation, the former R Bar at the Roker Hotel has become Poetic License, a distillery bar specialising in spirits, craft beers and cocktails.

Poetic License will proudly stock four Sonnet 43 beers on a regular basis, along side a rotating selection of eight guest beers from regional, national & international breweries

Poetic License Distillery Bar is something totally different for, not only the area of Sunderland, but the whole of the North of England. To have a bar using its very own hand-crafted spirits & craft beers is something that has never been done before, We wanted to breathe some much-needed life back into the seafront scene.

We’ve had a few queries with regards to the bar’s name. We wanted to do something different, and focus more upon the ethos of the bar and the atmosphere we wanted to create inside.

The definition of Poetic License means ‘to be at liberty to deviate from conventional rules In the traditional English spelling of the phrase, License is spelled with a ‘c’. However when spelled with ‘s’ is a verb, meaning ‘to give permission to’. So in our case, ‘Poetic License’ is the permission we grant you to be at liberty to deviate from conventional rules, be yourself and most of all enjoy yourself whilst in our bar.
