Are these ‘world lagers’ brewed in Britain or abroad? After astonishing success of Yorkshire-brewed ‘Spanish’ beer Madri, how 80% of ‘global beers’ sold in supermarkets are British made

Madri Excepcional lager took the world by storm after it launched in October 2020, in just four years it was bringing in a whoppy £100m in sales for its parent company Molson Coors. 

The Spanish styled lager, whose logo is a man dressed in a traditional chulapo and whose slogan is ‘el alma de Madrid’, meaning the soul of Madrid, has soared through the ranks to become the sixth best selling beer worldwide 

However, the company has come under fire over its heavy Spanish marketing as the beer is actually brewed 2000 miles away from Madrid in Tadcaster, Yorkshire, which it claims is for environmental reasons. 

But it is not the only brand to be marketing its goods under the assumption that it is from an idyllic holiday destination, in fact new data from NIQ argues that around 80 per cent of ‘world lagers’ in supermarkets are actually brewed in the UK.
