LOST ABBEY FOUND IN ENGLAND!
Some of the greatest beers in the United States have arrived in England in time for Christmas. Beermerchants.com are now selling a carefully chosen selection of brews from the award-winning California-based Port Brewing Company and its sister outfit, The Lost Abbey.
Founded in 2006, Port Brewing Company has established itself as a key player in the US craft beer market. Originally brewing only for the customers at the Pizza Port group of restaurants, they now distribute across the States and have enjoyed multiple-medal success at the Great American Beer Festival. Beers such Hop 15 have been lauded by hundreds of beer enthusiasts at the renowned website ratebeer.com. Inspired by the monastic brewing traditions of Belgium, Lost Abbey is Port Brewing’s sister operation, taking a New World approach to brewing historical European styles.
Now, bottled beers from both Port and Lost Abbey can be enjoyed by UK drinkers. For Phil Lowry of beermerchants.com, bringing these beers to Britain has been both a crusade and a labour of love. “Having tasted these beers over in California, I knew I had to import them”, said Phil. He’s personally chosen fourteen brews that he feels best showcases the range and depth of what is available from the West Coast brewer. “We’ve already had many enquiries about these beers, ” said Phil; “We’re as excited about selling them as you will be tasting them!”
Complimenting the Beermerchants range of imported and domestic craft beers, bottles including Wipeout IPA, Old Viscosity and Devotion will be available to buy individually or as part of special selection packs. With seasonal beers such as Gift Of The Magi and Santa’s Little Helper on offer, Port and Lost Abbey beers make ideal festive gifts for your favourite beer drinker.
With limited stocks and high demand expected, beer lovers should order early from www.beermerchants.com to ensure they don’t miss out on these rare beers over the festive break.
