The brewers of the familiar to everyone Newcastle Brown Ale are in the process of launching some unfamiliar beers. Besides Newcastle Amber Ale, Newcastle Star, and a few other limited edition Newcastle products that have long been discontinued, we haven’t really seen any beer added to the Newcastle line since 1927. That all changed last year when bottles of the refreshing Newcastle Summer Ale hit our shelves. The beer was prosperous, came around again this year, and is still available at some of our locations. Due in part to the success of Newcastle Summer Ale, the brewers have decided to release an entire seasonal line of Newcastle beers.
Even though it is labeled as a fall seasonal, Newcastle Werewolf will be available at every Binny’s location within the next couple of weeks. Here is how Newcastle describes their latest brew: “What better way to toast the fall than to have a bottle of this formidable, dual character brew. At first, smooth with mellow overtones of sweet berry fruit, a bite of bitterness suddenly cuts through, long, deep and lingering. Brewed with rye malt, it is naturally blood red in color. Unlike the mythical wolf-like creature said to roam the bleak moorland surrounding Newcastle, this is real, so consider yourself warned!”
Newcastle also has plans for winter and spring seasonal brews:
Newcastle Winter IPA: Zesty in character and jam-packed with a creamy finish, the Newcastle Winter IPA is full-bodied and hoppy, delivering unique and authentic malt flavors for the cold season and snowy matchdays.
Newcastle Founders Ale: A rich ode to the heritage and the work of five of the best brewers in the city coming together to show off their craft, Founders Ale offers a full-bodied ale with a sweet and dry finish.
