Wetherspoon sells canned beer

Wetherspoon has teamed up with Sixpoint Brewery in Brooklyn, New York, to exclusively serve three of its canned beers across its 900 plus pubs.


The award-winning craft beers will be available in all Wetherspoon pubs from March 5.


The beers; Sweet Action, The Crisp and Bengali Tiger will be available in 355ml cans and will be served in a world beer glass.


Sweet Action (5.4 per cent ABV) is described as “part pale ale, part wheat, part cream ale”, The Crisp (5.2 per cent ABV) as “a pilsner style lager brewed with noble hops for an indelible sehr crisp flavour” (sehr means ‘very’ in German) and Bengali Tiger (6.4 per cent ABV) as “blaze- orange in colour with an abundance of citrus hop bitterness and a full pine and grapefruit bouquet in the aroma.”


Wetherspoon chief executive John Hutson said: “We are thrilled that the beers from Sixpoint Brewery will be served exclusively in our pubs.


“We pride ourselves on offering the widest selection of drinks and looking for new drink styles for our customers to enjoy.


“Cans are the biggest growth area in the US craft industry and the three beers from Sixpoint taste and look fantastic.


“Wetherspoon strives to bring the best drinks from around the world to its pubs and this is highlighted with the introduction of Sweet Action, The Crisp and Bengali Tiger.”
