    "Today is a sad day for the European Union and there is bound to be a great deal of uncertainty over the coming months as the UK and the remaining 27 EU Member States negotiate the best possible outcome from the UK decision to leave the EU. The UK’s brewers do however remain a key part of the European brewing family and The Brewers of Europe is determined to work together with our UK member, the British Beer & Pub Association, and all brewers across the continent to help guarantee a bright future for beer in Europe. Europe’s beer market is a major growth creator, job generator, trader and taxpayer and beer has been seeing something of a renaissance over the last ten years as new breweries and beer brands have sprung up across Europe. All these qualities, together with beer’s innate capacity to bring people together will be crucial to ensure a positive future for all of Europe’s brewers and the millions of beer consumers across the UK and the rest of Europe.
