Newcastle Brown Ale Announces Limited-Edition Founders' Ale
Newcastle Brown Ale, brewer of “One & Only,” has announced the release of its fourth Limited Edition brew, Founders’ Ale. Available nationwide for a limited time, this beer tips its hat to the heritage and tradition of Newcastle’s five founding breweries. The introduction also marks the expansion of all Limited Edition brews — Founders’ Ale, Summer Ale, Werewolf and Winter IPA — which now are available nationwide on a rotating basis throughout the year.
Available for the first time in the United States, Newcastle Founders’ Ale is a full-bodied, drinkable brew with dry, hoppy and roasted flavors. The classic Bitter ale is balanced by subtly sweet aroma notes of caramel and fruit with a short, clean finish.
“The iconic five-point star on our label recognizes the five founding breweries of Newcastle, and this beer further celebrates the legend of our original, hard-working Geordie brewers and patrons,” says Charles van Es, brand director Newcastle Brown Ale. “With Founders’ Ale, we are answering consumer demand by offering all of Newcastle’s Limited Editions nationally in 2012, giving everyone a chance to enjoy a bit of authentic English history.”
Brewed with premium malts and Styrian Goldings hops, Newcastle Founders’ Ale has an alcohol by volume (ABV) of 4.8% with 20 International Bittering Units (IBUs).
