The history of...Scottish Newcastle

Newcastle Brown Ale was originally produced by the Tyne Brewery in Newcastle, but is now brewed by John Smith’s in North Yorkshire, UK.

The famous logo with the blue star dates back to the time of the beer’s launch in 1930. The five points of the star represent the five breweries in Newcastle. In recent years, the brand made waves with a controversial advertising campaign in the US market. Their motto is ‘no bollocks’. Try it and you will understand why.
