BA infographic detailing growth in the US craft beer industry

Based on 2014 beer sales volumes the BA, a trade group representing small and independent craft brewers, has detailed the top 50 largest craft brewing companies in the US. A second list details the top 50 overall craft brewing companies in the US taking into account any brewer with a stake in craft brewing, of which 42 were exclusively craft brewers.

“The companies on this list include the vanguard of the craft industry,” said Bart Watson, chief economist at the Brewers Association. “They are exposing new beer lovers to craft, opening new markets and creating opportunities for the entire category. As they continue to grow, so will the availability of innovative and high-quality beers produced for all to enjoy.”

The Brewers Association defines a craft brewer one that produces less that six million barrels a year; that is independent with less than 25% of the craft brewery owned or controlled by an alcoholic beverage industry member that is not itself a craft brewer; and is traditional in that its beers’  flavour derives from “traditional or innovative brewing ingredients” and their fermentation.
