Because we study and gather qualitative psychographic data, it’s interesting to read quantitative stats. Fascinating!
- As of March 2012, there were 1,989 operating breweries in the USA.
- American small and independent breweries provide well over 100,000 jobs. Think of the end number when you add the large brewery employees!
- The small and independent breweries produced somewhere in the range of 11.47 million barrels in 2011.
- Over 4000 beers were entered in the 2012 World Beer Cup competition, which included 95 styles from 56 countries judged by 215 from 29 countries.
