Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
personally I expect to be pretty drunk.

The craft beer revolution in the UK will run into trouble pretty quickly cos a lot of breweries like using bamberg maltings for some of their flavour malts.

Also, british hops have fallen from favour in recent years. But barring a trade deal those exotic hops (US, Czech, Australian, NZ and Japanese) are going to be hard to source.

A return to good old fashioned English mild and bitter? Well, I don't mind, but not in these circumstances

keep to the Fen Causeway

The USA grows hops. The Yakima Valley - Washington, Oregon and Idaho - I believe, is a major supplier.

Lots of hops farms in the Lower Yakima Valley in Washington.  Perhaps that can be in the opening round of Der Drumpfenfuehrer's big bilateral trade agreement with the UK.
