U.S. craft beer breweries per capita 2017, by state

Craft beer breweries per capita in the United States in 2017, by state*

by Jan Conway, last edited May 2, 2019
U.S. craft beer breweries per capita 2017, by state California is the craft beer brewing capital of the United States with over 700 breweries within the state in 2017. Craft breweries are so numerous in California that almost 92 percent of the population lives within 10 miles of one. Surprisingly, despite having the most craft breweries in the country, California does not lead in terms of craft beer production. That title is held by Pennsylvania, likely because the state is home to Yuengling, the craft beer titan, which produced over 2.7 million barrels of beer in 2017.
What defines a craft brewery?

A craft beer brewery is defined as one which produces less than six million barrels a year, is independently owned (less than 25 percent of the brewery can be owned by an alcoholic beverage company that is not a craft brewer), has a TTB (Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau) Notice, and of course, makes beer.

The craft trend

Craft brewing is a trend that has swept the whole nation. Four times the number of breweries operate now than a decade ago. With each passing year, craft beer captures a larger share of overall beer production volume. This is driven by a growth in consumption, with 40 percent of population drinking craft beer at least several times a year.
