The 6 fastest-growing alcohol businesses in the UK

3. Brewhouse & Kitchen (real position = 19th)

Founded in 2012, each Brewhouse & Kitchen venue has an on-site microbrewery fermenting locally themed beers for its young and metropolitan customer base. The business was inspired by the US microbrewery scene and boosted by early funds from the Enterprise Investment Scheme and Puma VCT, according to the Sunday Times.

Kris Gumbrell, co-founder of Brewhouse & Kitchen, is an increasingly vocal member of the craft beer industry, taking up a key speaking role in Cask Marque’s annual Cask Report launch earlier this year. The pub boss highlighted said that equality is a crucial element to his business, noting that 48% of the group’s customers are women.

“In terms of a struggling industry, this growth is quite exceptional,” Gumbrell told the drinks business ,”and our annual sales have risen over 103%.”

“It is so rewarding to see this, as a fast-growing independent business, myself and the rest of the team are thrilled to be ending 2018 on such a high and are looking forward to 2019 to see what this brings.”
