Women Drinking Real Ale Has Doubled in UK

The number of British women drinking real ale has increased two-fold in the past year, according to a new survey.

Almost one in three is enjoying what the campaigners regard as Britain's "national drink".

The survey involving 1,000 adults, for the Campaign for Real Ale (Camra), showed that one in two drinkers had tried real ale, a 15 per cent increase from last year.

A total of 30 per cent of women drinkers said that they drank real beer, compared with 16 per cent in 2008.

"These findings show the increasing consumer demand for wide choice, top quality, and generally for local produce," the Telegraph quoted Mike Benner, chief executive of Camra, as saying.

"Such good news comes at a time when pubs continue to close at a rate of over seven a day, which has a huge impact on community life.

"It must not be forgotten that real ale can generally only be bought in pubs, therefore with greater popularity for Britain's national drink comes further much-needed publicity for community pubs," he added.
