THE award-winning Saltaire Brewery is looking forward to a new chapter after joining forces with a leading beer exporter.

The brewery is the first brand to be brought onboard by Sovereign Beverage Company in the last 18 months, joining household names such as Marston’s Brewery, Greene King, Innis and Gunn and Robinsons.

Nick Helliwell, sales and logistics director at Saltaire Brewery, said: “After our recent rebrand, this is another very exciting chapter for us. We’re dedicated to exploring all export opportunities and it’s brilliant that Sovereign can see our overseas potential too, bringing us onboard alongside other reputable and credible breweries.”

Sovereign will be driving the international distribution of Saltaire’s core 500ml bottled range including Blonde, Unity and South Island and its latest 330ml bottle line. The deal will also focus on exporting the brewery’s brand-new keg range which currently includes four beers, Velocity, a session IPA, Zipwire, a citrus pale, Polarity, a black IPA and Full Tilt, an Australian and New Zealand pale.
