When Camden Town Brewery were given a launch pad to turbocharge their mission to make the world as passionate about Hells as they were, I began to question what it meant to be a “craft” brewery.
Quick, call the Craft Beer Police, there’s a brewery outsourcing production! Why did they do this, and more importantly, do you care?
We would like to naively think that our favourite craft breweries are all innocently magical places started by beer loving entrepreneurs, but are they just another big business dependent on private finance? If so, then just how stable is the future of the UK craft brewing industry?
