Gone are the days where you’d find the same old ales in every single pub and shop. The beer world is rapidly changing, things are getting weird, and we love it! A creative bunch of brewers asked the planet if it was ready for breakfast and dessert flavoured brews, and we said YES!

Any beer-lovin’, beard-wearing hipster can appreciate a good quality, flavoursome brew, but for those of us who are new to the craft beer hype, it can be a bit of a minefield. If you need more than the quirky beer can designs to go off, we’ve compiled a list of the Top Craft Breweries in the UK for 2019 to help you find the gems in amongst a crowded market. So kick back, crack a can, and enjoy!

South West

Electric Bear Brewery – Bath

As local Bath boys, it’s safe to say that we’ve tried our fair share of local beers, and every day we thank our lucky stars that this award-winning brewery is based right here in our hometown. In fact, the delicious, exciting flavours are so good, that many of us here in the South West have put down our ciders and picked up an Electric Bear Brew, and that’s saying something.

Best Brew 🍺 Above the Clouds – A crushable IPA with notes of pineapple and sweet tangerines.

Verdant Brewing – Falmouth

Based in ‘Falifornia’, Verdant Brewing creates modern, ‘hop-forward’ pale ales, IPA’s and DIPAs (Double IPAs). Homebrewers Adam and James started brewing back in 2014 when they were tired of not being able to sample up-and-coming craft beers in their local Cornish pubs. But instead of crying into their pint glasses, they did something about it! And thank God they did, because their hoppy, juicy, vegan brews are mighty fine! And everyone in the South is so much hoppier.

Best Brew 🍺 Lightbulb 4.5% – This full-bodied, zingy cask ale is a firm favourite.
