Newcastle Brown Ale is a solid beer, very popular amongst the student population in UK – it is a drink I am of course familiar with and have sampled on many previous occasions. Sadly it wasn’t available in Malaysia so my last experience of it was a LONG time ago.
Newcastle Brown Ale is actually the No. 1 selling premium bottled ale in the UK and available in more than 40 countries, the latest being Malaysia! When I was recently notified that Newky Brown (as we call it) – is now available in a variety of outlets in Malaysia – I knew I had to go and have a glass (or 5..)! You can read more about the beer and the history of this lovely ale on Wikipedia: Newcastle Brown Ale.
I headed over to Sid’s in TTDI to get myself a bottle and unwind on a Friday night. It was RM18 for this 325ml bottle, served nicely chilled with a special NBA glass!
It’s a lovely light tasting brown ale, rather refreshing and very pleasant to drink. Even Kim found it nice, better than those expensive wheat beers haha.
Of course like all good things (including me) – it’s imported from England!
So get yourself down to one of the outlets selling this delicious beer and get yourself a bottle of Newcastle Brown Ale – “The One and Only!
When I posted on Twitter and Facebook about having a bottle of NBA, quite a few people responded – especially those who studied in UK. They all wanted to know where they could get a taste of the good stuff too.
Some of the outlets which serve NBA are as follows:
- All 4 Sid’s outlets (TTDI, Bangsar South, Damansara Heights, Bukit Tunku)
- Malones (KLCC, Pavilion, KL Sentral)
- Finnegan’s (Mid Valley, Hartamas, Changkat)
- Jarrod & Rawlins (Hartamas, Damansara Heights, Ampang)
And a few other places, so there you go – go have a drink 🙂
