Who has the highest brewery to person ratio in the country? If you think about state population, this probably doesn’t come as a surprise. The Street did a little research, here’s what they came up with:
Vermont: 16 breweries produced 1.4 million barrels last year. That’s 1 brewery for every 82,000 people. Consumption: 32.7 gallons a year per person. Highest in U.S.
Montana: 27 breweries produced 1 million barrels last year. The ratio of brewery to person is one of the highest – 1 for every 37,000 people. Consumption: 30.5 gallons a year per person.
Vermont: 21 breweries produced just over a half a million a year. That’s a 1 brewery for every 30,000 people.
California: This is interesting. 245 breweries produced 22 million barrels a year. Consumption? The lowest in the U.S. per person, at just 18.5 gallons a year. There is A LOT of Cali beer sold everywhere in the U.S.
