Beer Hawk hails the importance of bricks and mortar retailing
The UK’s largest online beer retailer has hailed the importance of bricks and mortar stores after unveiling plans to open a bottle shop in central London.
“We are benefiting from the general rise of craft beer and specialist beer, which is becoming a little more known to the mainstream,” said Roberts. “In the US, craft has become a significant part of the beer category, accounting for 16%-20%. We are still way behind that in the UK, but every sign is that we are still following a similar trajectory. More and more people are going to discover craft and speciality beers.”
