Ales Remains the Fastest Growing Segment

Natural ingredients, such as water, barley, yeast, and hops have been involved in the production process, since its outset. In the most mature and some emerging markets, consumers are starting to drink ‘less-but-better’ beer, generally with a higher barley and malt content. Ales style craft beer has clearly upheld its position in the craft beer market from decades. The rapid growth in the US craft beer has displaced some of the demand for the darker lagers and ales, brewed in the United Kingdom, Ireland, and Germany. Sour Ales, Imperial Porters, Golden or Blonde Ales, Kölsch, and Shandies are among some of the other top-growing craft beer styles for 2018.
