Industry-leading SIBA British Craft Beer Report to return in 2022 in association with Croxsons

The SIBA British Craft Beer Report is to return next year – having been postponed in 2021 due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic – and due to be launched at BeerX UK in March 2022.

Somewhat fittingly it was at BeerX UK in March 2020 when the report was last published, the week before the country went into National lockdown. The SIBA British Craft Beer Report 2022 is being published in association with Croxsons, who have come on board as the first ever Official Industry Partner.

The report will once again pull together the latest data on the independent craft beer market, including academic analysis of the SIBA Members’ Survey, newly commissioned consumer research, and a broad range of industry data and reporting, edited by former The Publican Editor and current Independent Brewer Editor Caroline Nodder.

The SIBA British Craft Beer Report is the most comprehensive report of its kind published in the UK and provides incredibly valuable insight into the independent craft beer market in the UK, including expert analysis and commentary from some of the industries foremost writers. I am delighted to see the return of the report in 2022 and look forward to seeing what emerging trends and insight it throws up.

I would also like to say a huge thankyou to Croxsons, who have come on board as the first ever industry partner for the report and with whom we have been able to continue offering industry-leading research, analysis and commentary.” James Calder, SIBA Chief Executive.

Croxsons, who specialise in beer containers, closures and design, have extended their support to the report, coming on board as Official Industry Partner for 2022. COO Tim Croxson commented,

We very much look forward to being involved with the report and to be in a position to make a meaningful contribution. Given the pace of change, only by analysing the market and understanding trends can we fully understand the way it is moving and how, in particular, brewers and retailers can reimagine the opportunities presented to them. ”

The SIBA British Craft Beer Report 2022 will be published on Wednesday 16th March at the Society of Independent Brewers’ (SIBA) flagship event, BeerX UK in Liverpool, the UKs biggest beer and brewing trade event.
