In 2012, Craft Beers saw a 15% increase in sales. This was the sixth straight year of sales growth. Many cities across the country are experiencing a craft brewing boom. Increasingly beer drinkers are turning away from mass-produced light lagers and drinking more complex local beers.
Microbreweries have capitalized on the growing local movement. Consumers are increasingly choosing local, handcrafted and homemade products. Many entrepreneurs have entered the business because they are passionate about beer, enjoy experimenting and building a local brand. The products are fun. I.P.A, Pale Ale, Brown Ale, Imperial Stout and Irish Amber Ale are just a few of the products that are available at your local brewery.
