Craft beer is on tap in the British capital this weekend as part of a series of international events, including the UK’s first craft beer pub opening.
The UK’s National Craft Beer Day, which is scheduled for Friday, is being hosted by the British Breweries Association (BBA) in support of the country’s craft beer industry.
A series of events taking place in the city include an all-day craft beer and craft food event, as well as the first ever British Craft Beer Festival.
The UK has had a beer culture for a long time and it has continued to grow over the last five years.
It is estimated that the UK craft beer market has grown by 50 per cent over the past five years, with a craft brewery in every county now producing over 1,500 litres of beer a year.
The event has been held since 2012 and has attracted more than 2,500 participants, including celebrities and beer lovers.
The first British craft beer brewery, Brewdog, opened in London in the early 1990s, and since then has grown into a global brand with over 50 UK breweries.
This year, the BBA is hosting its second annual British Craft Brewing Week event, which takes place on Saturday.
The BBA has also announced plans to open a new pub in the City Centre.
“The UK craft industry is growing at an incredible rate and we know that it’s the best way to showcase the variety of craft beer that the country has to offer,” said Sam Allaire, the president of the BDA.
Craft beer is now available in more than 60 countries around the world.
According to the BAA, the UK beer industry is expected to be worth more than £500 billion by the year 2030.
There are more than 1,100 craft breweries across the UK, including more than 120 in the capital.
British craft beer is being promoted on social media and by celebrities including James Corden, Jessica Chastain and Jamie Foxx.
The annual British Brewers Festival will take place from May 19 to May 21 in Birmingham.
