Consumers want variety in beer and background music systems

New research from The Campaign for Real Ale has revealed that there are over 1,000 breweries operational across the United Kingdom; the highest total currently in business since the 1930s.

The findings, which are included in the 2013 edition of iconic publication ‘The Good Beer Guide’, discovered that there were 1,009 breweries now operating in the country. Over the past 12 months, a record-breaking 158 breweries were opened across the United Kingdom; twice as many breweries open when compared to a decade ago.

Speaking about the finding, Roger Protz, the editor of The Good Beer Guide, said:

“The UK beer and pub industry has changed enormously over the last 40 years…A double-dip recession has done nothing to halt the incredible surge in the number of brewers coming on steam, making the small brewing sector one of the most remarkable UK industry success stories of the last decade.

“[It] shows how brilliantly diverse our pub industry remains,” he added.

The news from The Good Food Guide highlights the continuing consumer demand for variety in the drinking experience. The same philosophy can be applied to the atmosphere of a bar or pub. Customers want the opportunity to enjoy themselves in a venue which helps them relax and socialise. But, variety is the spice of life.
