A New Report on the State of Craft Beer Shows Vermont Leading the Way

C + R Research has just released a new report on the craft beer industry. It contains a number of insights:

  • Vermont has the most number of breweries per capita
  • And Vermont also produces the most pints per capita
  • To no surprise to anyone that follows this industry, the number of craft breweries continues to show a steady upward trend
  • And the states seeing the most growth are New Jersey and Kentucky

But I think the most striking figure in this report is the economic impact:

Per capita for 21+ adults, Colorado comes in at No. 1 with an economic impact of $764 per person and Vermont at No. 2 with an economic impact of $681 per person. These numbers represent the overall output of the craft beer industry in each state based on the 21+ population.
