Here are the 10 consumer drinks trends to watch out for in 2018

10. Craft Porters and Stouts

Darker beers are finding new life in the craft renaissance, according to the report. The number of british craft breweries has more than doubled in the past five years, and industry leaders have also noted a growing interest in local beers in pub chains, which all points to a larger variety of brews on offer.

As well as this, the quality of dark beer has soared in recent years, which hasn’t gone unnoticed by the judges in the drinks business’ Beer Masters 2017.

Shane McNamara, a Beer Sommelier one of the judges, said the dark beers this year “were a very strong category across the board.”

“Bold balanced flavours were matched with finesse and intrigue for the drinker … the biscuit, rich cocoa and chocolate flavours were integrated well with coffee undertones and hints of vanilla in some.”
