Craft Beer Production Up 18% In 2014

To all those who have been waiting for the craft-beer bubble to burst, the Brewers Association sent a definitive message Monday: It’s not coming anytime soon. Through the first half of 2014, production of locally made beer is up 18 percent from the mid-point of 2013, according to the Boulder, Colo.-based national industry group. This comes as national shipments of all beer are down 0.1 percent through the end of May. (bizjournals.com)
