Friday, November 28th, 2014

Cheers for a “White Christmas”!
Wednesday, November 5th, 2014
It will definitely be a white Christmas this year as far as Saltaire Brewery is concerned - as we launch our special festive brew White Christmas in bottle and keg for the first time. In bottle it's available from Booths supermarket from 5 November as part of its Christmas ales range and is also available through some independent retailers. It's available in cask and keg from 1 December. “This is a first for Saltaire – we usually brew seasonal ales but purely for casks however this time we have brewed this special ale for bottle, keg and cask which means our White Christmas will be available to a broader customer audience,” commented Ewen Gordon, Sales Director. White Christmas is a pale refreshing beer made with pale rye and Vienna malts. The light hop flavours are enhanced with coriander seeds and orange peel which are added at the final boil creating the flavours of Christmas in a pint! The bottle and keg version of White Christmas is a specially brewed 5.8% abv, the cask version is 4.5% abv. To check availability and place orders, please call us on 01274 594959....Read more
