In 2013, we launched the International Craft Brewers’ Showcase, bringing around 20 brewers from around the globe to our pumps each year.
Below, you can find the international beers currently featured in our pubs across the UK.

Jason Meyer has returned to brew this popular beer for us again, this time at Banks’s Brewery in the West Midlands. This light-copper-coloured beer really showcases the American hop varieties used, with plenty of citrus, tropical fruit and resinous notes in the aroma and flavour, plus a refreshing, dry character which continues through to the finish.

SUDWERK INBETWEEN 4.8% ABV
Sudwerk Brewery, Zurich, Switzerland.
Martin Halter has travelled to Everards Brewery in Leicestershire to recreate this dark brown-coloured beer for us. The initial walnut aroma is balanced by American hop notes, leading to a hoppy bite in the flavour, complemented by a developing caramel & hazelnut notes.
