Real Ale Experiences ‘Surge In Popularity’ In UK


Over 70 new breweries opened in the UK over the last year, hinting that real ale is experiencing a surge in popularity.

A study released this week by the department of food science and technology at the University of California also found that beer is an important source of silicon, which improves bone density and could help prevent osteoporosis.

Jon Howard, press officer for Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA), said: “In terms of an interest in real ale, our organisation now has almost 110,000 members and since the turn of the 21st century has grown by over 50 per cent.”

He went on to say that there are now over 700 breweries in the UK, which is higher than at any other time since the Second World War.

Mr Howard said that home brewing is becoming increasingly popular as people are keen to replicate the cask-conditioned beer that they get at their local pubs.
