    I think you'll find Courage RIS is for the US export market - you have a much better chance getting that off a BA in the US than over here !!!

    Good King Henry has very limited distribution - I only know Durham/Newcastle for pubs, not bottle shops but if a simple google search doesn't yield anything obvious in terms of good bottle shops (and a lot of good bottle shops don't tend to stock GKH!) then I think you'll be out of luck.

    Havent seen Courage RIS in twenty years sadly and Good King Henry is not available in the NE area im afraid, if it was i'd have it myself. There is a wine shop within Fenwicks dept store in Newcastle with a range of beers, not an outstanding range but better than your average dept store. Sainsburys in the basement of Eldon Square shopping centre in Newcastle carrys some local beers including Durham Brews.
    North of the town centre near Gosforth is the gem that is Coppers 8 til 8 which carries an ever expanding range of beers both rare and common from all over the world. http://www.ales4you.co.uk/ you could twitter the owner to see if he has access, if anyone round here does it'll be him http://twitter.com/#!/Coppers8till8. Good luck.
