Worry: readers are concerned about Trump becoming president

Donald Trump as president of the United States is a major concern for the readers of The Morning Advertiser (MA), the results of an online poll have found. 

A staggering 75% of MA readers said a US government led by Republican party candidate Donald Trump was a scarier prospect than his rival, Hilary Clinton.


All-nighter

Pubs across the UK will be getting in on the US action, with some hosting all-night screenings of the event.

The Royal Blenheim pub in Oxford is expecting large crowds this evening as it will be screening all-night coverage of the Presidential campaign. 

The Oxford Mail reported Jane Binyon, who runs the pub with her husband Mike, said: "It should be interesting. It will depend on what side you're on but I reckon it'll be quite a celebratory atmosphere."

Back in April, the US Brewers Association (BA) released figures stating imports of US craft beer in the UK were rising  on the back of a global increase in exports of 16.3% for last year.

The UK is fourth in the running order of export markets for US craft beer, behind Canada (51.1%), Sweden (10.1%) and Ireland (9.6%) with market share up 0.1% to 9.5% last year in comparison with 2014.

Key trends

This year’s Great American Beer Festival, held by the BA, identified key trends for the UK , which included American cream ales.

The BA urged operators to keep a look out for six key trends in 2017 - IPAs, lagers and Pilsners, sour beers, spontaneous beers, coffee-flavoured beers and barrel-aged beers.

The beer festival was the BA's 35th annual event. It was held in Denver Colorado and saw an astonishing 60,000 beer fanatics through the doors between 6 and 8 October.
