NBWA Applauds Steady Growth for Craft Beer

The National Beer Wholesalers Association (NBWA), which represents the interests of America's more than 3,000 licensed, independent beer distributors, applauds America's craft brewers for their continued growth and entrepreneurial spirit, which adds excitement to the American beer industry.

The Brewers Association (BA) released data today showing that craft brewers, as defined by the BA, continued steady growth last year as American craft beer production volume increased 6 percent on a comparable base – representing 12.3 percent market share by volume of the overall beer industry – and saw a 10 percent increase in retail dollar value, representing 21.9 percent market share. The data also indicate that craft brewers produced 24.6 million barrels of beer in 2016.
