Euroboozer ships 'biggest range' of US craft beers to hit UK in one go

Published:  24 July, 2015

World beer importer Euroboozer has launched what it claims is the biggest range of American craft beers and ciders to ever land in the UK at one time.

The initial 10 beers and ciders to arrive on the first shipment come from Boston-based Harpoon and a collection of New York producers: Bronx Brewery, Captain Lawrence, Butternuts and Doc's Cider.

Euroboozer has linked up with New York-based export company Crafted Exports, which uses a temperature controlled supply chain to keep beers fresh.

Euroboozer founder Martyn Railton said: "America has some of the most unique craft beers, breweries and beer characters in the world so it's great to be working with some of the best of them.

"With the trend for American food booming within the pub, restaurant, casual dining, street food and wider foodservice sectors - to use an American saying - I expect all these beers will knock it out of the park.

"With quality, freshness and consistency of paramount importance to the UK consumer, we're proud to be bringing these US beers to the palates of UK drinkers - tasting exactly how they do in the States."

Railton launched Euroboozer from the back of a Volkswagen Bora in 2003, initially importing the Austrian brands Hirter, Stiegl and Schremser.

The company delivers direct to accounts in London and south east England and works with a network of sub-distributors around the UK.

The line-up includes: UFO and IPA from Harpoon; Session IPA and Rye Pale Ale from Bronx; Freshchester Pale Ale and IPA from Captain Lawrence; Pork Slap Pale Ale and Moo Thunder stout from Butternuts; and Draft Hard apple cider and Draft Dry Hopped Hard cider from Doc's, the last of which contains Centennial and Chinook hops for a product to appeal to both beer and cider drinkers.
