The Craft Brewers Industry is Growing


Tap into the fast-expanding Craft Beer market

The Craft Brewing Industry continues to grow as more consumers look for quality alternatives to mass-produced options. Don’t sit back and let this business pass you by because you feel coverage is too specialized or difficult to place; placing Craft Brewers has never been easier.

“Craft brewer retail dollar value in 2011 was an estimated $8.7 billion, up from $7.6 billion in 2010.  The number of craft brewers has gone from 8 in 1980 to 537 in 1994 to over 1600 in 2010.” – Brewers Association

Brewers are an independent-minded group dedicated to quality and innovation. Too often, however, craft brewers may not be aware of the risks they face, or worse, may not be properly protected against them.  We teamed up with Hanover to protect Craft Brewers from the unique threats that can destroy years of hard work and planning.
