Rolling out the Riojan

Posted on by in Craft beer

FLAVOURS from the hills of Rioja have found their way into the UK on-trade after Manchester-based importer Morgenrot further boosted its portfolio of Spanish beers.

Ceriux-Rubia-Bottle
Following the launch of Andalusian beer Alhambra, Morgenrot is now rolling out two beers from the Cervecera Artesana brewery in Rioja.
Morgenrot’s expanded portfolio now includes Palax – a 4.9% ABV bottle conditioned beer made from Hallertau Tradition hops which is said to have a flavour profile that offers aromas of honey and citrus notes with a rounded taste; and Ceriux Rubia – a blond craft ale made using Perle and Cascade hops with a flavour profile described as both “refreshing and complex” with a “balanced bitter finish”.

Morgenrot commercial director John Critchley said the beers are of “unbelievable quality”.
“Since I first tried [the beers] I have been desperate to get the brewery’s UK distribution rights,” said Critchley.
