'Massive' rise in micro breweries in Wales

If the number of independent brewers in Wales continues to rise, it could hit the 100 mark within the next year.

That is the view of the organisation representing micro breweries which says the thirst for craft beer in pubs and beyond shows no signs of a drying up.

It comes as the number of traditional pubs have declined, with a pub closing every couple of days in Wales.

But the number of breweries has doubled in the past five years to 88.

Buster Grant, a Brecon brewer and chairman of Drinks Wales, said there has been a huge increase.
