Due South Brewing Co. announces its first international collaboration brew which will be with a new brewery, Edge Brewing, in Barcelona, Spain. Founder and head brewer Mike Halker will be crossing the Atlantic in February to brew two different styles of beer. In addition to the beer production, other things on the agenda include various events around Barcelona introducing locals to Due South’s beers, beer dinners which will pair local food with Due South beers, and question and answer sessions with local brewers to provide insight on the growing craft beer industry in the United States as well as the brewing process in general.
“As the first brewery from south Florida to do an international collaboration, we’re extremely excited to make the trip to Spain.” says Mike Halker. “I see this as much more than beer getting brewed. This collaboration indicates the beginning of a cultural shift in Spain, a country known more for its wine than its beer. The American craft beer movement is gaining popularity in Europe and Due South Brewing Co. is thrilled to help expose the people of Spain to the plethora of flavor possibilities when it comes to designing unique beers. We’re not only going to make beer; we’re going to make a statement.”
