We're pleased to say that we're launching Saltaire Blonde and Cascade Pale Ale into 25 Sainsbury stores throughout West Yorkshire this month – as an extension to Sainsbury’s Yorkshire offer. Our most popular bottled beers, both are pale but are very different in profile – the Blonde has soft malt flavours and is delicately hoped with Czech and German hop varieties and based on a recipe for a Bavarian style beer. Whereas the Cascade Pale Ale is an American style ale with floral aromas and a punchy strong bitterness from the Cascade and Centennial hops. The two ales are being introduced as Sainsbury’s is focused on offering local and regional products.   Sainsbury’s Regional Buyer, Geraldine Bruce, commented, “We are delighted to be listing two of Saltaire Brewery’s most popular beers in our Yorkshire stores. They have already gained a solid reputation both regionally and further afield. At Sainsbury’s we are committed to providing local and regional products to offer our customers the best choice and further support our local communities.”...

Booths Buying Manager, John Gill said “I’m very excited to be able include Le IPA as a guest beer in the Booths Beer and Cider Festival.  A collaboration beer brewed by two of my favourite breweries, from opposite ends of England is definitely worth tasting, especially in celebration of Yorkshire’s hosting of Le Grand Depart.”

We've brewed Le IPA to a joint recipe created with Dark Star – it’s an apricot coloured IPA style beer which has a good body and strong malt presence.  French grown Triskel and Brewers Gold hops balance bitterness with fruity flavour which are further enhanced with the addition of coriander to add a creamy spicy depth.  This highly refreshing ale was brewed to create...
