In honor of St. Patrick’s Day tomorrow, we took a look at the economic impact of the beer industry in the United States and more specifically, how craft breweries support Georgia. During the past several years, craft breweries have expanded throughout the city, largely in small industrial spaces. In 2011, Georgia was home to 21 craft breweries, and today, the amount has more than doubled to 53 total statewide. In 2016, it was estimated that beer’s annual economic impact for Georgia was $8.5 billion, and more than $1.6 billion of that was generated by craft beer.
