Tenth and Blake is bringing in 750 mL bottles of Worthington’s Red Shield Blond Ale and Worthington’s White Shield IPA out of UK-based Worthington Brewery. The brewery is located in the region that is the “home turf of English ales,” says Tenth and Blake President and CEO, Tom Cardella. “It sits in Burton Upon Trent along a river that is one of the highest mineralized water sources in the world. That has traditionally been one of the key components of English ales.”
Last summer, MillerCoors parent company, SABMiller, entered into an agreement with Belgium-based Brouwerij Van Steenberge to brew and distribute a new brand under the name, St. Stefanus. Look for St. Stefanus Blonde and Grand Cru in 750s as well.
All four beers will be available only in bottles and are slated to arrive in the U.S. by late spring/early summer per Cardella [ed. note: at least as of a month ago].
