New Patagonia Brewery has secured distribution for its Antares premium beer in the US.

The Argentinean brewer confirmed earlier this week that Aladdin Beverage will be the exclusive importer to the US for the beer brand.

"We know that Americans are becoming more and more choosy and sophisticated about premium beers," said Juan Manuel Balmaceda, director of New Patagonia. "Antares is among the best in the entire world, and it will be the only beer from Patagonia in Aladdin's list of world-class beers."

The beer portfolio includes Kolsch Beer, Scotch Ale Beer, Porter Beer, Imperial Stout beer, and Barley Wine Beer. Antares will be available in the US in 330ml and 600ml amber glass bottles as well as in 330ml six-packs.

Antares is already available in Canada, Germany, Australia, South Africa and Brazil. A presence in Japan is due to be announced soon.
