Saltaire launches range of beers in The Co-operative Food

SaltaireThe Co-operative Food is the latest retailer to add Saltaire Brewery’s award-winning bottled beers to their local range. The Brewery’s three leading bottled beers, Saltaire Blonde 4% ABV, Cascade Pale Ale 4.8% ABV and Saltaire Pride 3.9% ABV are now available in selected Co-operative Food stores across Yorkshire.

This latest listing and increasing consumer demand means that the Brewery’s bottled beer sales have doubled in two years. Ewen Gordon, Managing Director said:

“We’re delighted that The Co-operative Food is now stocking our beers. We pride ourselves on the quality and taste of our beers and we know that this philosophy is shared by the convenience retailer when it comes to their food and drink ranges. We’re a good match!”

As well as the Brewery’s most popular bottled beers making it onto The Co-operative’s shelves, two of its specialist beers are also available at selected stores in Yorkshire. Raspberry Blonde 4% is refreshing blonde ale, delicately infused with the flavour of raspberries, and multi-award winning Triple Chocoholic 4.8% is a flavoured stout that combines chocolate malt and chocolate essence to give a strong chocolate bouquet and a rich chocolate flavour with a balanced bitterness.

Joe Turner, Bottled Ale Buyer for The Co-operative Food said, “The popularity of Saltaire Brewery’s beers is impressive and supports our focus on providing quality, locally sourced produce in our stores. We are very pleased to be able to make them available in our stores throughout the region.”
