Einstök Icelandic beer cans to make UK debut

Canned versions of the Einstök Icelandic craft ale range are being launched by its UK distributor Love Drinks.

Two of the four beers in the range – White Ale and Arctic Pale Ale – will be available in 33cl cans from the beginning of November in a six-pack format.

Einstök managing director Gudjon Gudmundsson said: “Since entering the UK market six years ago we’ve always had plans to introduce our award-winning beers in canned format, but these things take time and we wanted to make sure that the cans reflected the quality of the beer inside. 

“After testing the waters in the US market, we’re ready to bring our brewery-fresh beer to the UK.”

The Einstök core range in the UK also includes Toasted Porter and Wee Heavy.

A seasonal release, Einstök Doppelbock, will be launched in November for the Christmas market.
