  Ale
Ale is an old word for a fermented alcoholic beverage obtained chiefly from malted barley which was formerly brewed without the use of hops.
Before the introduction of hops into England from Flanders in the 16th century ale was the name exclusively applied to malt liquor[?], the term beer being gradually introduced to describe liquor brewed with an infusion of hops.
The colleges of the universities used to brew their own ales and hold festivals known as college-ales; some of these ales are still brewed and famous, like "chancellor" at Queen's College, and "archdeacon" at Morton College[?], Oxford, and "audit ale" at Trinity, Cambridge.

Newcastle Brown Ale was created by Colonel Jim Porter in Newcastle, England during two years of painstaking development, where he sought to develop a unique tasting beer combining the full flavour of ale with easy drinkability.
Newcastle Brown Ale was an instant success in its native north east and soon gained popularity on a national scale, aided by a distinctive bottle shape, clear bottle and ‘cottage-loaf’ label.
Newcastle Brown Ale continued to grow in popularity throughout the post-second world war period and, owing to its origins among the miners and shipbuilders of the north east, became synonymous with hardy, working-class traditions and values.
