The UK craft beer scene is booming. Every year I think its run it’s course, it kicks on another gear and 2019 was no exception. Since May I’ve been documenting a few craft beers in a photoblog (@mmm.beers). As is now customary with Instagram, once you reach the last day of December a ‘top nine’ must be selected. In this case, I picked out my top nine UK-brewed craft beers from 2019.
Anyone who’s supped a Verdant brew In recent years will know just how good their beers can be. 2019 was an incredible year of beer for those guys, so much so this list could have been dominated by a host of Verdant Double IPAs.
In the interests of variety, I limited them to two and omitted the likes of ‘Your Limitation…’, ‘Don’t Tell Gus’, ‘What’s Done Is Done’, ‘Comfort Settings’. One thing is for sure, it was certainly a year of smooth, hazy DIPAs all round.
Here we are, in no particular order…
Here’s to another cracking year for the UK craft beer scene! 🍻
