What is the thing that worries you

most about the future of craft?

“Poor quality beer putting new

drinkers off is an issue. In-fighting

as the market share is squeezed

when we should be introducing new

drinkers rather than scrabbling over

the same ones will get tired. It’s going

to be interesting to see what Inbev

et al’s next moves will be as well. As

long as the duty relief doesn’t deviate

much from where it is, the small guys

will always be able to compete.”

What is the thing that excites you

most about the future of craft?

“The Saison revolution is coming

and we’ll be manning the barricades!

Seriously though, I think we’re going to

move back towards more regionality

and freshness as breweries start to

focus more on direct sales to the

public and more breweries invest in

mixed ferm and wild projects.”
