American Brewers Association releases 2016 stats

The American Brewers Association released their 2016 stats, and while craft beer is still growing, growth is slowing.

It's also fun to play "Spot the deceptive graphics representing data!" with their infographic.

Forbes magazine followed with some speculation as to why this is happening, along with an overview of some recent mergers and acquisitions in the craft beer world.

The next beer you try might be the best beer you will ever have.

Interesting, I taught a class at MUN last week and the one Piece of info I didn't have was the current # of breweries in the US. Bigger than I thought.
So many beers, so little time...
