GLASGOW, SCOTLAND – Kestrel Lager, formerly of Wells and Youngs Brewing in Bedford, UK has been acquired by Brookfield Drinks, Ltd, which is planning to re-brand the premium lager and sell lighter versions of the popular brand in UK supermarkets.

Plans are in the offing for a low-alcohol 2.8% variant as well as an alcohol-free version, a Pilsner and a “premium” 5.0% lager. Read Full Story
