Yorkshire’s Saltaire Brewery launches first low alcohol beer – Northern Light. 0.5% abv single hopped pale

Yorkshire’s Saltaire Brewery has launched its first low alcohol beer this week to expand its range beyond its well-known traditional and craft beer ranges, and allowing the brewery to start tapping into the growing no and low drinks market. It’s ready to enjoy during Dry January or Tryanuary, or even the latest national lockdown.

Highly refreshing 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, who previously worked at Brewdog developing its beer range. Rob says of this latest creation: “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!”

With drinkers increasingly looking for tasty, low alcohol alternatives to their favourite tipples, Saltaire’s sales director Nick Helliwell said: “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:
