Ninety-seven percent of the breweries in the United States are craft breweries, and at the moment, new craft breweries are opening at the rate of one each day says US News. That’s pretty amazing. There are 2,126 breweries in total – that number includes craft breweries and big breweries like Miller or Budweiser. Compare today’s number to the late 1970s when there were only 89 breweries in the country, and you can see the impact that the craft beer movement has had.
