Fordham Brewing “Declares Their Independence” in the United Kingdom

By coastalbrews January 31, 2012

Dover, DE—The Fordham Brewing Company began exporting four styles of craft beer to the United Kingdom this month, urging drinkers to “declare their independence” from the big breweries.

Noting the burgeoning craft beer market in Europe, Fordham has commenced shipping craft beer to the United Kingdom with the help of Heathwick, LTD. The first wave of exports delivered Copperhead Ale, Tavern Ale, Doppebock and Helles Lager, which are being offered in pubs and liquor stores all over London. Intended to be session beers, these four styles provide an accessible introduction to the flavors and nuances of the craft beer world.

Jim Lutz, President and CEO of Fordham and Old Dominion Brewing, stated, “There are a growing number of beer drinkers in the United Kingdom looking to try something different.  They are focusing on actually tasting their beers and they want something flavorful and drinkable.  That is where the range of styles and taste within Fordham Brewing can deliver.”

Fordham and Old Dominion have been brewing high quality beverages in Dover, Delaware since 2003.  They provide tours of the brewery (located at 1284 McD Dr., Dover, DE) and provide samples of their products, such as Scotch Ale, Oak Barrel Stout, Baltic Porter and Copperhead Ale every Wednesday at 5:00 and 6:00pm, Friday at 4:30 and 6:00pm and Saturday at 12:30 and 2:00 pm.
