If the last few years have been all about breweries like Magic Rock, Pressure Drop, BrewDog, Beavertown and so on the next couple of years will be dominated by the likes of Cloudwater, Northern Monk and Yorkshire’s Vocation Brewery.

This time last year I visited the Independent Label Market which included lots of great breweries like Five Points, Beavertown and at the time a not very well known Fourpure.
