(Boston, MA) – The past 40 years have seen enormous innovation and change in American businesses. One of the industries that has completely reinvented itself is the beer business.
In 1970 there were fewer than 100 breweries operating in the United States. Consumers had limited choices. Today, two enormous global brewers produce over 90% of the beer made in the US but there is a growing segment of the US beer industry that did not even exist 40 years ago – craft brewers. And it is American craft brewing that is on the rise, creating jobs and bringing quality and innovation to store shelves.
