Craft Beer Rising 2018 Wrap

March 2018

While our team is still recovering from the excitement (and beer) that Craft Beer Rising always provides in abundance, we’d like to take the time to say a special thanks to all the consumers and trade professionals who visited our stand during the 3 day event.

With hundreds of breweries from all over the world in attendance to sample and showcase their latest and best beers, Craft Beer Rising is the pinnacle for consumers and drink trade professionals interested in the new, the different, the diverse and the innovative when it comes to beer.

Morgenrot had the pleasure of running two stands at the event – one for our Basque brewery Mala Gissona and one showcasing the rest of our varied range of world and craft beers including BeerCat, Krombacher, Palax, La Pirata, Quilmes, Sleemans and Pang Pang.

Both stands saw strong traffic and interest throughout with a selection of pinxtos provided by the Mala Gissona team proving extremely popular with trade visitors.  The Basque brewery’s collaboration brew with Ilkley Brewery – “How Do you Like Them Pineapples?” was also a big success and was probably our most popular beer of the show.

In the lead up to the event, Mala Gissona founders Manu and Iban also ran a UK wide tasting tour where they visited Liverpool, Manchester, Leeds, Bristol, Cardiff and London so a huge thanks goes to them for their efforts, energy and enthusiasm throughout.
