UK #

I saw this little blurb on the Brookston Beer Bulletin, Jay Brooks goes on to say, “Well this is a tidy bit of news. CAMRA is reporting that the number of breweries in the United Kingdom is now over 1,000 for the first time in over 70 years. Other tidbits include that there are “[t]wice as many brewers now in operation compared to a decade ago” and the “[n]umber of micro breweries have risen despite recession and pub closures,” something we’ve also experienced here in the U.S., too. You can read the full story in the Scotsman, but tonight I think an English beer may be in order.”

Coming on the heels of last month’s session about where will the number of breweries in the US be at in five years, this shows that the fever is not confined to our shores. I would love to see the day where the US again has to play catch up to styles and beers from the rest of the world.
