An international partnership is helping companies from County Durham to promote their products overseas.
Durham County Council’s international relations team is instrumental in building partnerships around the world to promote economic development and cultural opportunities.
Its work with Durham, North Carolina, has seen the two areas come together to boost their economies, develop university links and take part in exchange projects with groups of musicians and young people.
The latest project has brought brewers from the twinned communities together, with four craft breweries from each side of the Atlantic partnering up for a festival.
Brewers from County Durham have shared recipes for their own ales with their American counterparts who, in turn, have produced the drinks to their specification ready for the event.
Caps Off, Hops and Dots, Steam Machine and Durham Brewery will all have their beers sampled alongside four craft breweries from our sister city.Source: Aycliffe Today
