Wetherspoons brings controversial change to every pub next month – .

Budget pub chain Wetherspoons has announced a controversial menu change – and some fans will be furious.
The pub has decided to remove some of the country’s most popular drinks from its menu.

As of December 15, pub fans will no longer be able to order Strongbow and Strongbow Dark Fruits, or John Smith Bitters.

The change comes after the company signed a new 20-year agreement with Budweiser Brewing Group to become its largest supplier.

The deal will see drinks such as Budweiser, Stella Artois, Corona, Leffe Blonde and Bud Light – as well as Bathtub Gin, Bud Light Seltzer and Mike’s Hard Seltzer – feature in all 860 Wetherspoon pubs.

But the Strongbow and Strongbow Dark Fruits draft ciders will be replaced by Stowford Press Apple and Stowford Press Mixed Berries, made by Westons Cider.

John Smith’s bitter is replaced by Worthington’s bitter, supplied by brewer Molson Coors, according to the Mirror.

The changes will come on December 15 across all Spoons pubs after a 41-year association with Heineken and other predecessors.

Wetherspoon says demand for Budweiser Brewing Group drinks has increased during the pandemic and its menu change will reflect that.

Tim Martin, President of JD Wetherspoon, said: “Budweiser Brewing Group UK&I will now become our largest supplier, with new Budweiser, Corona and Leffe Blonde beers, in addition to their existing products, Stella Artois and Bud Light – as well as a range of bottled beers.

“We are also delighted to have entered into long-term supply agreements with BrewDog, Westons Cider, Carlsberg and Molson Coors.
