There are a huge number or regional brewers and micro brewers which are quite happy to supply to specific areas and to limit certain volume which is sometimes based on the values of the company and quality but sometimes based on a different taxation applied to higher volumes a brewery brews.
The regional and the micro brewers produce great quality real beers / ales and also have the ability to introduce new products and varieties on a regular basis as the supply chain needed to distribute these season specials are in place and these smaller ‘one off’ beers can be brewed in small volumes bringing creativity into the forefront.
One rapidly growing brewer Brewdog originating from Scotland has a global foot print and brew some truly amazing beers as well as run a number of brew pubs around the world as well as operate a zero carbon brewery. Their creativity is second to none as they constantly develop new beers and expand their global presence as well as have an out of the box marketing approach when it comes to naming some of their beers, much of the time linked to a National event!
Some great options of companies to order from depending on where you are in the world.
