Per­cent­age of Brew­ery Open­ings and Clos­ings

Craft Beer & Brewing Magazine - - The Mash -

The Brew­ers As­so­ci­a­tion mid-year num­bers are out, and brew­ery open­ings show no sign of abat­ing. We’re on track to sur­pass 7,000 brew­eries in the United States, and the num­ber of brew­ery open­ings in 2018 may ac­tu­ally ex­ceed the to­tal num­ber of open­ings in 2017. As one might ex­pect, brew­ery clo­sures are also on the rise, but de­spite the larger num­bers, clo­sures have held at a con­sis­tent 4 per­cent of to­tal brew­eries for the past four years. If that num­ber holds true in 2018, we could ex­pect about 250 brew­eries to close their doors. Here, we’ve pro­jected out year-end 2018 num­bers based on the mid-year trends.
