‘Microbreweries are one of the fastest growing sections of the food and drinks industry following a 24% increase in numbers over the past year, according to new research. There are now 361 craft beer breweries, up from 291 last year. Over the past five years, the number of applications to HMRC to establish breweries has almost trebled, up from 101 in 2009-10.
