Craft Brewery Industry Growth

2017 was another year of growth for America’s craft brewers in terms of volume, market share and the number of jobs they create in the United States. According to the 2017 annual report released by the BA (Brewers Association) report, small and independent craft brewers saw a 5 percent rise in volume of beer in 2017. The number of operating breweries grew 16 percent to eclipse 6,300; the BA recorded 997 new breweries in 2017, while only 165 closed. Small and independently owned craft breweries account for 98 percent of all U.S. operating breweries.
Craft breweries are also creating new jobs. The BA report says craft brewers provided more than 135,000 jobs in 2017, which is an increase of 6,000 from the previous year.  (VISIT: Find a U.S. Brewery) Keep in mind small and independent craft brewers growth is particularly notable when you consider the overall U.S. beer market was down 1 percent in 2017.
The BA says craft beer continues to grow because people want to support local businesses. “Beer lovers want to support businesses that align with their values and are having a positive impact on their local communities and our larger society,” says Bart Watson, chief economist at the Brewers Association. “That’s what small and independent craft brewers are all about. The ability to seek beers from small and independent producers matters.”
