According to the BA (Brewers Association) craft beer in the United States holds only 8% of the market. I, myself find that a little hard to believe but who am I to say that these numbers are wrong. However, if their predictions are correct and Lord let’s hope that they are, then Craft Beer will seize it’s rightful place by 2020 with a margin of +/- 20% of annual beer sales in the US. Now THAT’S MORE LIKE IT!
Brew Hub takes a different approach, creating long-term arrangements Chief Executive Officer Tim Schoen calls “transparent partner brewing.” Which by all account in my personal opinion Tim, is marketing genius at its core. We should have been partners when I had my lemonade stand 30 years ago.
