Over the last three decades, the American brewing industry has undergone significant change. Starting in the mid-1980s, the industry witnessed the gradual emergence of an increasing number of small-scale, independently owned, craft breweries (Figure 8.1). By 2018, there were over 7, 300 craft breweries in the United States, which accounted for 13.2% of the U.S. beer market by volume (Brewers Association 2019a, 2019b).
