Morgenrot, the Manchester-based importer, has launched Argentina’s most famous beer, Quilmes Lager, in new 355ml cans.
The new cans will be showcased for the first time to the UK trade at a tasting at Manchester’s art and culture hub HOME on September 27.
The cans are available in cases of 24 x 355ml, costing around £24.70.
John Critchley, Morgenrot’s Commercial Director, said: “Quilmes is an Argentinian icon, known and loved around the world so we’re thrilled to be able to extend our relationship with the brewery and launch this new format to the UK market. The development of cans, which a few years ago would never have been seen in pubs, bars and restaurants, has been one of the stand-out beer trends so we’re confident the new line will see strong interest.”
