The revolution has been going for a while, the world has gone craft mad and so it should! We are in the day and age where small craft start-ups are offering the most exquisite beer we've ever tasted.
The history of craft brewing began when America’s brewing landscape started to change in the late-1970s. The quality of beer from these small breweries has improved over the years, enabling a wider distribution and establishing popularity and choice.
Up until the early-1980s the popular image of beer worldwide was simply that of a mass-produced commodity with little or no character, tradition or culture.
Fast-forward to today and you can find micro craft-breweries popping up all over the globe! Churning out the most evocative art work on their carefully crafted and curated brew.
There are over 2000 craft breweries in the UK alone, and we have no doubt that there will be plenty more joining the party!
World wide, there are currently around 20 000 + craft breweries in total. This shows just how in-demand craft booze has become.
You'd be forgiven for thinking that craft beer is simply a "trendy" and "hip" fad, but the concept runs much deeper than this; it's about embracing the local culture and showcasing something special through the speicifc ingredients used, the unique brewing process and the distinct, the cool branding and the perfectly refined taste.
We are incredibly lucky to have such a vast amount of vendors dotted around the globe, opening up a world full of unbelievable flavours, tastes and smells.
