Cask beer enjoyed a larger volume share of sales (47.7 per cent) among members of the Independent Family Brewers of Britain in the period from July 2011 to July 2012.

According to a survey of its 29 members, conducted by the organisation last year, the proportion of cask beer sold jumped from 45.5 per cent a year earlier - positive news for the drink despite falling beer volumes generally.

The news comes less than six months after a report showed 2.2 million barrels of cask ale were sold in the UK in 2011,​ the first increase in sales of the drink since 1991.

“The results of our annual member survey have been positive,” said Independent Family Brewers of Britain chairman James Staughton. “Cask beer is what sets our members aside from the competition, so we’re delighted to see it continue to increase in product share.”

The Independent Family Brewers of Britain currently has 29 members operating more than 4,000 UK pubs.
