This week the Brewers Association released its annual list of top 50 craft brewers, ranked by volume. As usual, there were shifts in the rankings. We first mapped this out in an infographic in 2015, and we’ve updated it every year since.
This year’s chart is marked by several new arrivals, including Brewdog, Creature Comforts, Fremont, Kings & Convicts (with Ballast Point), Montauk, New Holland, and Toppling Goliath. Meanwhile, acquisitions removed stalwarts Dogfish Head and New Belgium from the rankings.
Big climbers include Three Floyds (from 31st to 24th), Tröegs (from 27th to 20th), and Abita (from 24th to 19th).
Here’s the latest snapshot of growth, contraction, and consolidation.
