The Brewers Association is curating an exclusive American craft beer box for CAMRA’s Great British Beer Festival Winter, which runs from 19th-21st March.
Six fresh, high-quality, innovative American craft beer brands will be air-freighted from the States for inclusion in the box.
Lotte Peplow, the Brewers Association’s American Craft Beer Ambassador for Europe, said: “With GBBF Winter moving online, we wanted to be part of the festival and showcase American craft beers that are readily available in the UK market.
“We hope to reach beer lovers new to American craft beer and provide an opportunity for them to sample fresh, super-high-quality, leading-edge examples that are available in supermarkets, independent retailers or online retailers in the UK.
“We will also be providing exclusive content from the brewers or brewery owners themselves about the beers and how they are made.”
The UK is an important trading partner for American craft brewers and represents the second largest global export market (after Canada), with 11.9% of all exports. In 2019, global exports of American craft beer were worth $69.3 million.
