Current Industry News


Beer Industry NewsCraft brewing is exploding nationwide. By January 2014, America has over 2,768 craft breweries. Thousands upon thousands of people work in our brewing and distribution industry. We’re happy, employees are happy, and customers are happy (after all, we get paid to deal with beer, don’t we?).

As you’d imagine, our dynamic, fast-growing craft brewing industry is generating a lot of news. Reporting is from all over the map and – content-wise – all over the place. Think about it.
