These are the 9 fastest-growing beer styles in the US

3. IPAs

IPAs are everywhere, and they’ve been one of the breakout success stories of the craft movement since it began to pick up speed in the 1990s. Virtually every indie brewer has their own take on the style, whether bitter and hoppy, juicy and hazy, or more recently, “Brut”  (craft firms like Cinicnati’s Listerman California’s Drake brewing are churning out their own versions this summer).

IPA sales rose by a healthy 10.1% in the US over the 12 months to July, bringing in around $895.8 million. IPAs now make up 6% of the overall market, having risen 0.52% this year.
