Liverpool brewer Cains has secured its first transatlantic export deal.

It has linked up with Boston-based beer importer Win-It-Too for two export shipments totalling 104,930 bottles of Cains Export Lager, Cains Bitter and Cains Mild. The deal follows Cains' attendance at the National Beer Wholesalers Association trade show in Las Vegas this year. "Craft beers are becoming more popular in the US, and we're hopeful our award-winning beers and lagers will be a hit with US customers," said joint MD Sudarghara Dusanj.
