Strong beers at up to 12% abv form part of a 10-strong line-up of US and German brews coming to the UK.

Imported by James Clay & Sons, the limited-edition range of beers includes Eisbock from Bavarian brewer Schneider Weisse, at 12% abv, and an 11.5% abv Double Dog Double Pale Ale from Colorado-based brewery Flying Dog.

The beers are being launched to plug a gap in the market for an "inspiring and ever-changing" range of speciality premium craft beers, said Nigel Stevenson, James Clay & Sons sales director.
