Commenting on these forthcoming events Lotte Peplow, Brewers Association American Craft Beer Ambassador for Europe, said: “After the ravages of Covid-19 it’s great to see American craft breweries bouncing back and showing renewed interest in the UK market, which is, of course, an important market for American craft beer and accounts for 10.1% of all exports, behind Canada with 23.1%.
“The Brewers Association is delighted to be participating in the inaugural Manchester Craft Beer Festival and London Craft Beer Festival both for the first time and can’t wait to showcase an exciting range of world-class, distinctive and incredible tasting beers to the UK beer lover.”
