2012 per capita

The brewers association has compiled some interesting stats for 2012.

Top Five States in Age 21+ Output per Capita (2012)

Rank State 2012 Output/Capita

1. Oregon $448.56

2. Colorado $436.50

3. Vermont $418.57

4. Maine $324.36

5. Montana $315.37

It’s not surprising to see Oregon or Colorado on the list, but it’s at least a little interesting to see how much a local industry like craft brewing can have for smaller-population states like Maine and Montana.   Even Wyoming (a state not normally associated with craft brewing) has a relatively high impact per capita.

They also provided some interesting factoids about the current state of the industry.

  • Craft brewers currently provide an estimated 108,440 jobs in the U.S., including serving staff in brewpubs.
  • Growth of the craft brewing industry in 2012 was 15% by volume and 17% by dollars compared to growth in 2011 of 13% by volume and 15% by dollars.

Keep up the good work, brewers (and drinkers!)
