Newcastle Brown Ale has re-released its Limited Edition brew, Founders’ Ale. Available nationwide from February through April 2013, Newcastle Founders’ Ale is a classic British pale ale that pays tribute to the brand’s founder, Colonel Jim Porter.
“Colonel Porter took three years to perfect the original Newcastle Brown Ale recipe we still use today,” said Charles van Es, brand director Newcastle Brown Ale. “That commitment to perfection deserves recognition, and that is why a mere 85 years later we developed a brew in his honor. Newcastle Founders’ Ale is pale, dry and English – much like Porter – and we couldn’t think of a better way to honor his legacy than with this Limited Edition beer.”
Offering a balance of dry hoppy flavors and roasted caramel aromas, Founders’ Ale has an alcohol by volume (ABV) of 4.8 percent with 26 International Bittering Units (IBUs).
Newcastle Founders’ Ale is available in 6-pack and 12-pack bottles priced comparably to Newcastle Brown Ale. Founders’ Ale will also be available on draught at fine pubs in select markets.
