Top 50 Craft Beer Companies Announced

By on April 15, 2008 @ 6 PM (No Comments) has released some stats on the American craft beer scene for 2007, including the top 50 craft beer companies by sales volume. No surprises at the top of the list with Boston Beer (Sam Adams), Sierra Nevada and New Belgium sitting in the top 3 spots. I was happy to see though that the Spoetzl Brewery, makers of our almost hometown Shiner Bock, came in at number 4. There’s some great companies on the list – Bell’s, Dogfish Head, North Coast Brewing and our beloved Abita, coming in at 17. Check out the full press release here (PDF format).

You can also check out some of their other interesting Craft Brew Statistics, including how the craft beers break out – microbreweries vs. brewpubs, growth rates and total overall numbers. A worthwhile read.
