Every year the Brewers Association, a nonprofit trade group that represents small and independent craft brewers, releases a ranking of the top 50 highest-producing craft breweries.
This list is also accompanied by a ranking of the 50 overall largest U.S. breweries — including macro producers. Of the top 50 overall brewing companies, 40 were small and independent craft brewing companies.
“In an increasingly competitive and mature marketplace, these brewing companies continue to lead and pave the path for small and independent craft brewers,” says Bart Watson, chief economist, Brewers Association.
