Wetherspoon has announced a ‘brilliant’ selection of new drinks as they revamp their menu.
The pub group, led by Tim Martin, has signed a huge 20-year deal with Budweiser Brewing Group, becoming its largest supplier.
Budweiser, Corona, Stella Artois, Bud Light and Leffe Blonde can now be enjoyed by pub-goers, as can Mike’s Hard Seltzer, Bud Light Seltzer and Bathtub Gin.
The new deal brings an end to the pub chain’s 41-year partnership with Heineken.
Wetherspoon had previously agreed long-term deals with current suppliers such as Carlsberg, Marston’s Brewing Company, Molson Coors and BrewDog.
As a result of the new deal Strongbow and John Smiths pints will be removed from Spoons menus.
Strongbow and Strongbow Dark Fruits are set to be replaced by Stowford Press Apple and Stowford Press Mixed Berries from December 15.
John Smiths bitter will be replaced by Worthington’s bitter.
