California’s highest-rated beer

If you drink beer—any beer—you’ve likely heard of the craft beer revolution, and you likely fall into one of two camps: IPA warrior or lager loyalist. A beer-related revolution has many benefits. There are no right or wrong sides. You can enjoy your beer no matter what you prefer.

Breweries are a true revolution. The Brewers Association estimates that the United States has a total of approximately 3,000 breweries. The number of people who voted in 2020 was 390% higher than it was in 2010—all while beer consumption, on average, was declining. As of 2019, more than 90% of California’s population Living within 10 miles of a craft brewery.

Like all revolutions, this, too, began as a desire for change—as an overthrow of the old and the monopolistic. Anheuser-Busch InBev was a large beer company, while Molson Coors (formerly MillerCoors), was a smaller one. 77% of the total beer sales in America are from the U.S. In 2020, that share was 60%, with smaller brewers claiming a larger share toward the end of the decade.

The innovation and variety being offered by craft breweries has made consumers more demanding of higher quality products and willing to pay more. In the last ten years, beer prices has risen. Increased by 33%.

The sector’s growth in microbreweries and taprooms has led to tremendous job growth over the same time period. Increase of 55% in the number of brewery employees. The closures and social distancing restrictions caused by the coronavirus epidemic were especially devastating to the brewery industry. On-premise spending This is 50% of the craft beer industry’s total sales in 2019. In 2020, the craft beer industry had approximately a $6 billion in revenue and eliminated more than 22,000 jobs.

The sense of community that has been fostered by the growth of craft beer is another important side effect. People can support small businesses such as local breweries or taprooms to have a chance to get to know each other and to enjoy the revival of the millennia old tradition of brewing.
