The Association's full 2015 industry analysis, which shows regional trends and sales by individual breweries, will be published in the May/June issue of its member magazine, The New Brewer, available in May.

Late last month, figures from the Brewers Association showed a slowing in export volume growth from craft brewers in the US. The growth decline comes as domestic craft sales also slowed, according to numbers released a week earlier by the trade body.  In December, the BA said the number of breweries in the US had hit a new high, sailing past the record of 4,131 set in 1873.
