Sales of mainstream beer have been steadily dropping due to its stagnant flavour, cheap ingredients and lack of innovation. Customers are more conscious than ever about what they are consuming and are focused on the quality of ingredients rather than the price. Fortunately, Craft Beer was a big hit in 2017 and is bringing life back into the beer industry.

But what is Craft Beer and why is it flying off the shelves?

It’s a modern approach to brewing beer but on a smaller scale. Commonly referred to as micro-brewed or boutique beer, it’s about going back to basics and appreciating the art of brewing a good quality beverage.
