The Morgenrot Group has gained a listing for Argentinian beer Quilmes in 412 Tesco stores. The company became the new importer for the 4.9% abv beer four months ago and said it will be expanding its world beer offering.

The dates have been announced for the Great British Beer Festival 2010, which will take place at Earls Court in London, on August 3-7. Last year, 64,000 people attended and sampled more than 500 different real ales, ciders and perries. This year beer tastings will be held by Roger Protz, Melissa Cole, Jeff Evans, Christine Cryne and there will also be a Meet the Brewer session hosted by the Society of Independent Brewers Association.
