Spring time. A fresh Start.

So it’s spring time. A time of new starts and freshness. And here at Ale Mighty we have begun to notice, edging in from the hidden corners of dark pubs, a younger generation is starting to enjoy Real Ale.

Go in most brewery pubs these days and you will find a group of 18-25’s perched around, sipping, swapping, discovering new flavours. Fair enough, some of them give the impression of Bambi finding his feet for the first time, but each step is one in the right direction.

It is hard to tell what bought about this vogue. Has the industry changed to accommodate youth, or has the influx of youth brought about changes to the industry? One thing we’re sure about – Nobody seems to be complaining.

Over the next few weeks I will talk to breweries and bars, CAMRA and national companies doing their part. In keeping with the season we will be looking to the future. All may not be as rosy as it seems for the newcomers, with rising prices and watering holes harder to come by.

But hey, we are all a community here, so let us raise our glasses and carry on. Here’s to you, my friends!

    I agree – younger people are becoming ale drinkers. I think it’s good to see them stepping away from jägerbombs and the like.

    In the past few weeks I’ve began frequenting a few more ale pubs myself.
