Northumberland Ale – Ruby Tuesday’s Beer of the Week

Northumberland1

Ahoy. Tonight I tucked in with a delightful little gem from a small town called Campbellford. A classic favourite of mine, the Northumberland Ale is crisp and delicious! Church-Key Brewing is no newbie on the block, they have been brewing since 1999 in Campbellford, ON and they are located in an actual church! They are strong supporters of community and local ingredients and I promise you this flagship stock style ale will surely not disappoint.

Northumberland Ale (LCBO# 94367) from Church-Key Brewing, Campbellford, ON.

ABV: 5%

I LOVE Chruch-Key and the Northumberland Ale is an old favourite of mine- if you haven’t tried it you should go grab a pack and let me know what you think of it. Cheers!
