Forecasts for 2019: how the beer market in the UK will develop

In 2019, several interesting trends were observed in the craft beer market: the growing popularity of NEIPA, the emergence of many new sauers and (finally) the return of high-quality lagers. But what surprises does 2020 prepare for us?
