Micro breweries in Leeds are experiencing a large influx in demand for their craft products.
By Jennifer Tierney.
Tastes are changing in the city as more people swap from average lagers to craft beers.
James Dale, the bar manager for Craft Asylum #1 in Leeds said: “It’s an increase in area of market. You’ve traditionally got loads of what I would class as boozers, you know your old traditional pubs but you’ll notice there’s more and more venues like craft asylum that are either opening or have been already opened.”
“I think you’ll see more and more places offering craft beers even if they don’t specifically open for that reason but they will offer more as they go on,” Dale continued.
The demand for craft beers comes from a desire to cater for different tastes with a wider range of flavour possibilities. There are chocolate, fruit flavoured and even peanut butter beers.
Dale said: “Leeds is becoming a more experimental city and craft beers fit in well with this new trend.”
