Spanish brewer Mahou is reportedly set to open a field office in the US, according to reports in Florida.

Mahou, the brewer of brands including San Miguel, is planning to spend US$4m on its base in southern Florida, according to a report in the South Florida Sun-Sentinel yesterday (5 March).

The project will create a dozen jobs, the report said, citing figures from Enterprise Florida, the state's economic development agency that helped assist the brewer in the development.

Officials at Enterprise Florida could not be reached for comment as just-drinks went to press. Mahou failed to return requests for comment.
