Newcastle Brown Is 'Ale' Again

Dec 22, 2004 - A new label design for Newcastle Brown has brought the word 'Ale' back, four

years after marketers had decided to quit selling the beer as Newcastle

Brown Ale. Scottish Courage redesigned the label to add a "sensible

drinking" message, and decided to revert back to the beer's original name,

even though Newcastle Brown's sales were steady. For the UK's biggest

domestically-based brewer, the decision made sense; sales hadn't changed

downward, and with the label's redesign to add the sensible drinking

message, it was seen as an opportunity to put the 'Ale' back in Newcastle

Brown Ale.
