New York State Brewers Association: 326 Craft Breweries in Business Across New York State

(MEDIA ALERT) New York State Brewers Association Announces Rapid Growth of 326 Craft Breweries Now in Business Across New York State!

New York — The New York State Brewers Association announced today that New York State has officially surpassed 300 breweries for the first time since Prohibition. New York State now boasts 326 breweries and will rapidly eclipse the total number of 350 breweries that operated pre-Prohibition. The growth in regional breweries adds to a $4 billion economic impact in the state, ranking 4th highest in the country.

In February 2017, the NYSBA will debut its first iOS/Android app designed to be a one-stop mobile location for New York State breweries and beers. Select features will include a rewards-based Passport program, brewery locations by region, label scanning, suggested brewery tours, beer lists, style guides, social media integration, and more. The Passport program allows users to “stamp” their passport by visiting NYS breweries while incrementally earning rewards such as brewery discounts, gear, and plaques!

Official information regarding the New York Craft Beer app will be announced in the coming weeks.

About the New York State Brewers Association
The NYSBA was cofounded in 2003 by David Katleski of Empire Brewing Company to serve as a promotional and legislative proponent for New York State breweries, microbreweries, brewpubs and brewing affiliated businesses. The growth of the Craft Beer segment continues to be strong and New York State’s share of that growth has exceeded that of breweries on the national level.

In 2013, the NYSBA appointed Paul Leone as its first ever Executive Director as well as a new Board of Directors with revitalized energy and expertise. With this added level of managerial experience, the NYSBA is working diligently to rival other State’s associations and guilds and bring self-sustainability, and profitability to an already strong and vital organization.
