The Brewers Association has collaborated with beer importer Heathwick to bring American craft brews to Home Bargains for an Independence Day promotion.

Home Bargains Brewers Association

Six American craft breweries will be represented, many for the first time, and there will be 14 beers, eight of which have been unavailable in the UK to date.

The range will be available exclusively in large and extra-large nationwide stores of Home Bargains in a Celebrate Independence promotion. It starts on 28th June and will run while stocks last. 

Richard Sullock, commercial manager at Heathwick Ltd, said: “The new Celebrate Independence promotion will be the most comprehensive and eclectic range of imported independent American craft beer currently available in the UK, and brings a ground-breaking new approach to category management.

“With the help of the Brewers Association, we will be introducing an exclusive range of top-quality, innovative, and imported American craft beers to the UK market, and providing a huge point of difference from other retailers.

“Beer will be priced on par with the top four UK grocers, ensuring that shoppers benefit from an exciting new opportunity to purchase top-quality American craft beers with an accessible price tag.”
