Where to find your nearest craft brewery?
Britain is home to more than 1,000 craft brewers and has a population in excess of 64 million, so that's about one brewery for every 64,000 potential customers... and means that most British cities are home to at least one or more brewers, or certainly only a short drive from one.
The United States is home to more than 2,400 craft breweries... so, with a population of about a fifth of the US, relatively speaking the market for craft ale is a fair bit bigger on the British side of the pond.
And, with thousands of pubs latching on to the boom in craft ales, it's a market that's still growing.
