CHANGE is afoot at The Lord John which will stop selling some EU produced drinks following Brexit.

As part of new sourcing, JD Wetherspoon, which owns the Stroud pub, will switch from a range of German and French drinks including wheat beers and champagne.

For drinkers at The Lord John, this means more domestically sourced wheat beers such as Blue Moon and SA Brains Atlantic White.

Wetherspoon chairman, Tim Martin, a high profile Brexit supporter, outlined reasons for the change and what this will mean for their pubs.

"Brexit will create big marketing opportunities for UK and non-EU producers, which Wetherspoons is keen to encourage.

"We are starting to make the transition to non-EU trade now.

"The products we are now introducing are at lower prices than the EU products they are replacing.

However, despite the switch from EU producers, the pub chain will continue to serve Kopparberg cider from Sweden.

According to Wetherspoons, this is because Kopparberg has agreed to produce its cider in the UK post-Brexit.

"This is the start of a review all products in the next six to 24 months, with the object of making our business more competitive," added Tim.
