More and more of us are drinking craft beer, according to a new survey.

Brewhouse & Kitchen revealed that in a sample of 2,000 UK adults, more than 34 per cent said that beer was their favourite alcoholic drink.

Out of those, half of them preferred craft beer to mainstream beers.

Meanwhile, 23 per cent of women are trying more alternative styles of beer than they would have 10 years ago. And a third of Brits are enjoying more alternative styles of beer than the ever-popular lager.

The survey also showed that millennials are nearly three times more likely to be adventurous with their beer choices than previous generations.

Gail Bunn, marketing manager of Brewhouse & Kitchen said: "Every year, the craft beer market continues to grow in popularity, bringing with it a new wave of pubs and bars.

"Now it seems millions of us prefer to sample and enjoy many more styles of beer on a regular basis.

"This research is a welcome boost to the market, appeals to the majority and proves that craft beer and brewing is ready to compete on an international level. This is a very exciting time for pubs, brewers and the hospitality sector."

It comes ahead of Beer Day Britain which takes place this Saturday, June 15 and gives pubs all around the country the chance to raise a glass to the best British beer.
