Lagunitas, sixth largest in 2015, no longer appears in this chart, following Heineken's purchase of a 50% stake in late-2015.

Duvel Moortgat was the biggest mover, rising from 15 to 6.

New entry Artisanal Brewing Ventures is a new company combining Victory Brewing Co  - 26th in 2015 - and Southern Tier Brewing - 33rd.

The Brewers Association's full industry analysis for 2016, featuring regional trends and sales by individual breweries, will be published in the May/June issue of its member magazine The New Brewer, which will be available in May.
