Craft Beer Sales Grow Again

The newest figures from the Brewers Association show another year of double-digit growth for craft beer, which led all other segments in the beer category. The BA reported that estimated sales by independent craft brewers were up 12 percent by volume and 16 percent in dollars for 2007. Craft brewers? share of the beer category is 3.8 percent of production and 5.9 percent of retail sales.

The Brewers Association estimates the actual dollar sales figures from craft brewers at more than $5.74 billion, up from $4.95 billion in 2006. Sales in barrels equaled 8,011,141 (one barrel is 31 U.S. gallons) up from 7,147,050 barrels in 2006. The 2007 increase totals 864,091 barrels, which is the equivalent of 11.9 million cases or 285 million 12-ounce bottles of beer.

I'd like to take this moment to thank all of the SDBC members who have contributed to this record breaking event. Keep up the good work and may you never see the bottom of your pint.
