We are delighted to bring you No 015, a limited edition ale produced by the Allendale Brewery in Hexham. Made using only Maris Otter pale malt to give a light and refreshing clean taste, No 015 has a moderate bitterness and an enticing aroma making it the perfect introduction to real ale.
With a production run of only 300 bottles No 015 is named after Deep Straw, the colour of LEE Filters which most closely resembles the pale, golden colour of the ale. The inspiration for using a Lee Filters shade was suggested by one of our twitter followers during an appeal to help us come up with a suitable name.
The ale is a Hi-Lights branded bottle of the award winning Golden Plover produced by the Allendale Brewery, a local microbrewery who started brewing in 2006. In 2010, Golden Plover won Gold in the best bitter category of the SIBA North Regional Competition.
Scott Rowland, general manager of Hi-Lights, said "We're really excited about having our own beer for the first time. There has been great interest from both customers and colleagues who are all looking forward to sampling a bottle!"
