The only UK brewery ever to make the cut, Manchester's Cloudwater Brew Co was listed at number five after just two years of trading. It was a huge achievement for the young brewery, which took home a total of eleven awards at the ceremony including best beer in Manchester (with their DIPA v9), top 100 beers in the world (DIPA v3), and a number of mentions in the best beers by style.

The accolade signals the wider picture of a thriving independent brewing scene in Manchester. Brewers like Track, Runaway and Blackjack - to name just a few - create some astounding brews.
