As craft beers continue to gain popularity in the UK, high street pub operator JD Wetherspoon has invited select craft brewers in America to come take part in a new initiative in the UK. Each month until February 2014 two brewers from the US will team up with two in the UK to produce a new beer that will then be sold in JD Wetherspoons pubs. The idea came about after working with overseas companies during the Wetherspoon annual beer festival.
With craft beer becoming such a hugely popular drinking trend in the UK, this is a way to incorporate international names and feature new craft beers every month at local Wetherspoons pubs. This will combine the best of American craft brewing with traditional British cask-conditioned beer. This specialty beer will only be found in Wetherspoons pubs so be sure to check them out from now until February!
