Sponsor of the Week: YellowBelly Brewery & Public House

November 1, 2010

The 2010 Wreckhouse International Jazz & Blues Festival would not have been possible without the support of our corporate and media sponsors.  To show our appreciation for their support, Wreckhouse Jazz & Blues (WJB) will be showcasing a different sponsor each week.  This week’s sponsor of the week is YellowBelly Brewery & Public House.

Sitting where George Street intercepts Water Street, YellowBelly is a testament in stone and masonry to a time long gone.  This cornerstone of the Water Street Historic District has a long an significant historical association with commercial activities in old St. John’s.  Its five floors of character-filled brewery pub, dining, and event space offer unmatched historical atmosphere infused with forward-thinking cuisine.  Sample their specialty wood-fired pizzas and gourmet burgers in the dining room, or in their cozy pub setting.  Be sure to wash it all down with one of their crafted beers.  You truly can’t get this stuff anywhere else!

YellowBelly Brewery supports the Wreckhouse International Jazz & Blues Festival by providing a performance venue for Festival events.  The performance area located on the third and fourth floors of their historic property features ample seating space, access to two bars, and a beautiful stone masonry wall to backdrop all performances.  The atmosphere is fresh and refined, offering a venue where modern and historic elements blend seamlessly.  It was the perfect place for 2010 WIJBF artists the Creaking Tree String Quartet, the Forgotten Bouzouki, and the Griffith Hiltz Trio.

WJB would like to acknowledge and express gratitude for the contributions of YellowBelly Brewery and Public House, the Sponsor of the Week!


  1. As a ‘Yellow Belly’ from the heart of Lincolnshire ourselves we would be interested to visit the venue. Although Yellow Belly surely has a different meaning.

    • What does Yellow Belly mean? I am from Leicestershire myself but have never heard that phrase. Not sure what they meant when naming it Yellow Belly here in Newfoundland.
