Alcohol importer Morgenrot will bring the portfolio of beers from Catalonia’s BeerCat Brewery to the UK.
Known for its innovative and internationally-inspired brews, the Barcelona-based brewery’s eclectic range of craft beers will be made available to the UK off-trade.
Morgenrot will initially launch with three ‘flavour-rich ales’, including the 4.2% ABV La Masia, which provides a twist on the traditional English bitter brewed with the addition of five types of American and Australian hops; 5% Barcelona Blonde, with its malty profile and the fruitiness of the hop varietals used; and finally the 6.3% Further Westware west coast IPA, which is described as an ‘assertive beer’ with tropical fruit notes and a flavour bouquet as complex as wine.
The new beers will be available in 33cl bottles in cases of 24.
Morgenrot commercial director John Critchley said: “Our Spanish beer stable is a growing and profitable category for our company so we are delighted to strengthen it with the arrival of these special beers. Beautifully presented, the beers have heaps of flavour and, with the Spanish and craft beer scenes continuing to trend, we’re confident operators and consumers alike will appreciate the all-round quality of these remarkable beers.”
Beercat Brewery was set up by Martina Molloy and Peter Bonner in 2012, who, after pursuing their dream of setting up a microbrewery, swapped the streets of London for the vineyards of the Penedès and moved with their two young children to Spain.
