A Suffolk brewery says it sees no evidence of export sales drying up following the Brexit vote, after securing new deals in Norway and in the Cayman Islands.

St Peter’s Brewery, near Bungay, has continued to secure business-boosting export deals across Europe, and export sales now account for about 50% of its overall sales.

“People talk about the negative effects of Brexit, but so far we’ve seen no evidence of this on our sales or export deals. Interest in our beers is growing in Europe and across the world,” said chief executive Steve Magnall.

It has won a tender to supply its Cream Stout through the alcohol monopoly Vinmonopolet in Norway, and it has also signed a deal with a new customer in the Cayman Islands for its Golden Ale, IPA and Cream Stout.

“Deals like this prove that the taste for craft beer is far-reaching and we intend to be at the forefront of that growth and interest as much as possible,” he said.

Exporting was not an easy path was was certainly paying off for his firm, he said.
