Our special features writer, Karen McKenzie, has been investigating why so many breweries have chosen to base themselves in Cornwall (the south-west of England). Cornish beer has long been popular throughout the southwest of England, but its popularity has spread across the country in recent years. This is no surprise; competition amongst Cornish breweries is high, with the country’s greatest number of brewers per capita. According to beertoday.co.uk, there are 35 brewers in Cornwall; that’s eight brewers for every 100,000 residents. Have a read of our new feature here.
