Beer importer Morgenrot has reached a distribution deal with Catalonian brewery Cerveses La Pirata, bringing brews from Barcelona in time for summer.
The deal will see the Manchester-based importer distribute a selection of Cerveses La Pirata beers, including the 6% ABV Viakrucis – an American-style IPA made using Citra, Summit and CTZ Hops; and Suria – a 5% ABV gluten-free American Pale Ale, both of which are available in 30-litre key kegs or 330ml bottles. Morgenrot will also distribute Cerveses La Pirata’s Sansa, Black Bock and Deep Inside beers in 330ml bottles.
John Critchley, commercial director at Morgenrot, said the firm “searched the high seas” for “unique craft breweries” to join its portfolio. “After witnessing first-hand consumer feedback to the beers at Craft Beer Rising, we knew instantly that they had a place in this competitive UK craft beer market,” he said.
