Bob Pease, CEO/president of the Brewers Association — the not-for-profit trade association representing small and independent American craft brewers — on America’s Top 50 brewing companies in 2019
Every year, the Brewers Association releases its annual list of the top 50 producing craft brewing companies and overall brewing companies in the US, based on beer sales volume. Despite the current pandemic, this year is no different.
Although 2020 will be a markedly different year than 2019 for the American craft brewing market, these companies are well positioned to help the craft category weather the currentmarket uncertainty and rebound with the flavour, variety, and innovation that beer lovers have come to expect from small and independent American craft brewers.
The Brewers Association (BA) is the not-for-profit trade association dedicated to small and independent American brewers, their beers and the community of brewing enthusiasts.
The BA represents 4,000-plus US breweries. The BA’s independent craft brewer seal is a widely adopted symbol that differentiates beers by small and independent craft brewers.
The BA organises events including the World Beer Cup, Great American Beer Festival, Craft Brewers Conference and BrewExpo America, SAVOR: An American Craft Beer and Food Experience, Homebrew Con, National Homebrew Competition and American Craft Beer Week.
The BA publishes The New Brewer magazine, and Brewers Publications is the largest publisher of brewing literature in the US.
Beer lovers are invited to learn more about the dynamic world of craft beer at CraftBeer.com and about homebrewing via the BA’s American Homebrewers Association and the free Brew Guru mobile app.
