BEER’S Top 5Os

THE BREWERS ASSOCIATION has released its annual lists of the top fifty brewing companies for both craft and overall brewing companies. Statistics are based on sales in 2OO7.  “The majority of breweries in the US are independent craft brewers who continue to push the envelope in flavor and diversity and who continue to set the pace for the beer category,” stated Paul Gatza, Director of the Brewers Association. “In 2OO7, 14O6 of the 1449 breweries were small, independent and traditional brewers.”
