If You're the Beer Drinking Type...


I am quite certain that if you are of this particular proclivity than you are aware of Newcastle Brown Ale (the broon, dog, whatever you want to call it... just not Newkie). That particular brew is perhaps the best-known brown ale in the world. Recently, I have seen the famous blue star on a couple of other brews as well. In addition to The One and Only, the fine makers of the broon have introduced a Limited Edition small-batch series of beers which features four seasonal releases. I personally have had the pleasure of tasting the Newcastle Founders' Ale (a February release) but managed to miss out on Newcastle Summer Ale (April-July, according to newcastlebrown.com) and will choose not to partake of the Newcastle Winter IPA as I just don't much like IPAs.

The impetus for my putting this up here is that I would encourage you (again, if you're the beer drinking type) to seek out Newcastle Werewolf. I had stumbled across this brew the other day at a local bottle shop and was definitely not disappointed in the brew in any manner. Advertised as a "blood-red ale", it was surprisingly light-bodied for a red ale but not unpleasantly light with a nice, warm, roasty flavor. It is very drinkable and apparently went over well enough that they brought it back for a second year of release (it debuted this time in 2011)... It probably won't go on your list of all-time favorite beers, but if you're looking for something you haven't tried and you run across it, this one's worth a flyer.
