In the past decade, we’ve seen an explosion in the brewing industry in London, with much of that growth coming from breweries who describe themselves as craft, artisan or progressive.   However, is this rapid growth sustainable for the longer term?  There are many voices in the industry who are saying we’re reaching a state of ‘peak craft beer’ where there’s not much room left for newcomers and many of the smaller independents could potentially find it harder going, especially in a post-Brexit era.

In this podcast, we explore the current state of play in the independent London brewing sector and try to forecast where the challenges and opportunities will arise for these brewers in the near to longer term.
