It was bottoms up for a Buckden micro brewery following a successful trip to Germany to market its product and potentially achieve its first export orders.

Draycott Brewery was among one of eight companies selected to visit Dusseldorf, which included a tasting from German beer buyers, a presentation on the German beer market at the UK Consulate and a visit to shops.

The brewery was selected following an exporting workshop for micro breweries earlier this year, organised by Department for International Trade adviser Jose Richart.

“We have some excellent craft beer companies in this region so it is a great achievement for Draycott Brewery to have been chosen to showcase to the German market,” said Mr Richart.

“We know there is a lot of demand for beer brewed in the UK from overseas buyers, and this trade mission helps to further cement the East of England’s place on the map for having high-quality produce.”
