This is about Minnesota, but the nation too-PGA
In Minnesota, 14 brewers opened operations in 2013, making it a very good year in the brewing universe. By all accounts itâ€™s been another banner year for Minnesota beer. The stateâ€™s collective brew IQ continued to rise, and seemingly every new bar or restaurant eagerly touted its local tap selection.
The big-league festivals put on by the Minnesota Craft Brewers Guild and the Beer Dabbler each sold out, collectively drawing 16,840 beer fans. The phrase â€œcraft beer boomâ€ was used by the local media approximately 2,487 times (well, probably) in the never-ending stories about new breweries, surging demand or Minnesotaâ€™s brew-conomy (roughly 8,000 jobs strong and counting, says the Brewers Association).
