Left Coast picks up award-winning Seattle brewery Reuben's

19 November, 2015

Nottingham-based importer Left Coast Distribution has added Seattle’s award-winning Reuben’s Brews to its portfolio of American craft beers.

Reuben’s was founded in 2012 by British ex-pats Grace and Adam Robbings.

It was named fourth best brewery in The US Open Beer Championships last year, and its beers have won 42 awards in a range of American and international competitions.

Left Coast owner Nigel Garlick said: “Adam being an ex-pat was very keen to bring his beer over to the UK and so began this journey. We have always been impressed with the beers from the North West and we were keen to bring more beers from other breweries from Seattle and Washington State.

“We are very excited to be representing such a rich and fertile brewing region of the States and bringing some truly stellar beers to the UK.”

Left Coast is importing five beers from the Reuben range, all in 650 ml bottles. They include two IPAs: Crikey IPA, which has an ABV of 6.8%, and Life on Mars (ABV 8.2%).

The other beers are Robust Porter (5.9%), Pumpkin Junction (8.4%) and American Brown (5.9%).

Reuben’s is named after the Robbings’ first – and at the time only – son.

Talking terroir

When Bordeaux was in fashion, it seemed almost logical that we should fetishise winemakers. Here were people responsible for brilliant acts of blending, across large estates and multiple grape varieties, including superstars such as cabernet sauvignon and merlot. These days, fashion has moved on and pinot noir is ascendant. As a result, the star of the winemaker has fallen and we find ourselves following a new star in the sky: terroir.
