HMRC publishes annual statistics on Small Brewers Relief, this includes the number of people claiming the relief. Information on the number of brewers claiming the relief by production volume is not readily available. The Government will be bringing forward more details on the reform of SBR as part of the technical consultation later in the Autumn.
