→ NC craft beer industry now tops in the South

The [original estimate 300 new job created by the craft beer industry] was off by 2,700 jobs. And that’s just the number working in North Carolina’s 132 craft breweries. If you add related jobs, including servers, delivery truck drivers, beer shop cashiers and hop and barley growers, Erik Lars Myers, president of the N.C. Craft Brewers Guild, says the number is closer to 10,000.

If you love craft beer, you really can’t do better than what we have in North Carolina.
