The nonprofit Brewers Association released its inaugural list of the 50 fastest-growing small and independent craft brewing companies in 2017. The list represents 25 states and a diverse cross-section of the brewing community. The state of California claims the speediest growth with seven breweries listed.
“Being in the craft brewery capital of the world can present a lot of challenges to company growth,” said Greg Anderson, co-owner of Bay City. “At Bay City, though, our priority has always been to grow community first – the families, friends and loved ones that want to make memories with good beer. It’s what we owe our fast growth to, despite the ultra-competitive industry.”
While the Brewers Association won’t release specific volume details until May, the association noted median growth from 2016 to 2017 for the top 50 breweries was 216 percent. During that time frame, the median size of these breweries grew by 679 barrels.
