Craft Beer Sales Surpass 5% of Market for First Time

According to the Brewer’s Association, sales of craft beer for the first half of 2007 have continued their double digit growth trend, besting that period last year by 11% by volume and 14% by dollars. This sends craft beer right past a long-sought milestone – 5% of the beer market.

Speaking of the Brewer’s Association, they are the publishers of New Brewer magazine, the Nov/Dec 2007 issue of which will be dedicated to “green” issues and yours truly will be writing a feature article on zero-waste breweries. I’m glad to see they are focusing on these issues and i look forward to see what others will have to say in that issue.
