Poll Results

So reviewing the previous poll it seems that 50% of voters think it should be open to all (with a proportion of those suggesting approval by members at AGM).

So Craft Beer UK will be open to all, with the provisio that at a future AGM membership may be subject to review.

If any brewers wish to join Craft Beer UK it is currently free. We will include your brewery on the map and link from our links page. More will follow as we decide the best way forward!

Thank you everyone who voted.

A new UK beer organisation

Welcome to CBUK. This new members organisation looks to promote craft beer producers and sellers in the UK regardless of dispense. Please take a look around the website and follow us if you're interested in joining. More information will be added over the coming weeks. 

This website will act as a focal point for craft beer producers and sellers, cataloguing events and venues around the country and provide a social network for all of those involved in craft beer, whether that be producing, selling or most importantly, consuming.

No specific objectives have been set yet, that can only be done with suggestions from  those who want to join in. This is just the idea it needs shaping! It will oncentrate solely on UK beer however.

Please comment below with any thoughts.
