Drinks Cabinet

Craft Beer Takeover was set up in 2014 to recognise the emerging craft beer scene at the time. In 2016, Drinks Cabinet will grow to encompass cider, spirits, wine and mead as the drinks scene moves from strength to strength. 

As the drinks landscape grows, the discerning public is now more knowledgeable than ever with an unrelenting thirst for quality drinks fuelled by brewers and distillers who take pride in their product.

The 2016 edition will introduce visitors to a selection of exciting producers, the sort that customers are now actively seeking when planning their hospitality experiences.

This is your chance to connect with hundreds of restaurants, hotels, pubs, bars and cafes all eager to get hold of your product.
