Three trends changing the UK craft beer sector in 2019

Online craft marketplace EeBria Trade has released a report concerning the latest statistics around the craft beer market, using data from over 600 different craft breweries.

“Craft Beer is rapidly growing area of the beer industry, but it can be hard to track what’s going on in such a fast-moving space,” said David Jackson, the e-commerce site’s founder.

“At EeBria Trade we work with over 600 breweries through our beer distribution marketplace, so have access to an enormous amount of data on the industry. It’s exciting to be able to identify trends whilst they’re happening and be able to see in numbers what we already believe is happening.”

The breweries on the platform range from very small, one person, craft breweries to large regional breweries such as Adnams and Black Sheep.

The outlets on the platform range from independent freehouses to pubs in some of the UK’s largest pub companies, as well as restaurants, shops, bars and many other types of licensed premises, giving a fairly comprehensive insight into how businesses are trying to curry favour with craft beer enthusiasts today.

The report outlined a number of trends that are fast becoming part of the status quo in the UK’s beer industry, from the return of tinnies, to the normalisation of low and no ABV beers.
