Brewer says sí to Spanish beers

Beers on a bar

GREENE King has added some European flavour to its beer portfolio after inking a deal with Hijos de Rivera S.A.U to become the exclusive distributor of the Spanish brewer’s Estrella Galicia and 1906 beers in the UK.

The agreement, which came into effect this month, covers the Estrella Galicia brand, including Estrella Galicia 0.0 (its no-alcohol beer) and Estrella Galicia Gluten Free, as well as the 1906 Reserva Especial and 1906 Black Coupage.

The lagers will be available across the on and off-trades in keg, bottle and can format.

Matt Starbuck of Greene King said the breweries “share similar values, placing importance on the very best quality ingredients [and] producing great beer”.
