This will allow the brewery to start tapping into the growing ‘no and low’ drinks market.
Northern Light (0.5% ABV) is a crisp and citrusy pale in 330ml bottles. It’s the brainchild of Saltaire’s new development brewer, Rob Cooke (pictured), who previously worked at Brewdog.
Rob said: “It’s been great to join the Saltaire team. The guys here produce some cracking beers, and have a lot of brewing experience, but not in low-alcohol beer.
“I’ve been able to share my experience of brewing these kinds of beers, and I’m really chuffed with this one. It’s a really pleasing, single-hopped Citra beer, and at 0.5% ABV we can all enjoy as many as we like!”
Saltaire’s sales director, Nick Helliwell, added: “I’m so excited to add this beer to our range and, having tasted it, I really think many no- and low-alcohol beer drinkers will be delighted to give this a try. I also hope all our Saltaire beer fans give it go, too — it’ll make a refreshing change, and give them a great choice when wanting to keep their alcohol consumption low.”
Saltaire’s full range of bottled and canned beers is available for UK mainland delivery through its web shop.
