Chesapeake Beer Madness 2012

Sep 21, 2012 06:55PM ● By Anonymous

Each and every year, the madness surrounding craft beer continues to grow. In August, the Brewers Association, which represents the majority of U.S. brewing companies, reported that dollar sales for beer from independent brewers are up 14 percent for the year, while volume sales have jumped 12 percent. Across the country, more than 2,100 breweries (up 350 from June 2011) produce some of our favorite beverages in all sorts of styles – IPAs, lagers, stouts, and porters, just to name a few.
Check back every week during the month of October to see who’s been eliminated, and who’s moving on to the ultimate beer championship.
