Coors Brewers has confirmed the launch of two additions to the Grolsch portfolio of beers in the UK.

The company, part of Molson Coors, said earlier this week that Grolsch Weizen and Grolsch Premium Blond will be launched in the country in the coming quarter. Grolsch Weizen, which was launched in an on-trade trial in the UK in November 2006, will roll out to the UK off-trade at the end of the first quarter, a spokesperson for Coors Brewers told just-drinks earlier this week. The extension will be available in 500ml single bottles.

Grolsch Premium Blond, meanwhile, will roll out across the UK on-trade "as we speak", after what the spokesperson called a "successful limited trial" in the country, which began in December 2007.

Earlier this year, Grolsch signed an agreement with Channel 4 in the UK, which will see the brand sponsor the TV channel's Original Comedy programming across the country.
