Top Craft U.S. Beers Showing Double-Digit Growth

When it comes to adult beverages, beer has admittedly seen better days. The category has struggled to grow and has lost share to wine and spirits over the last several years, according to Nielsen’s State of the U.S. Beer Market report. Despite this overall decline, there are still product segments that continue to grow, albeit some, like craft beer, at a decelerating rate.

In Nielsen’s U.S. off-premise measured channels, the craft beer segment grew 3.4% in dollars in the 52 week period ended Oct. 7, 2017. Yet, within a segment as fragmented and variety-rich as the craft realm, there are still many healthy pockets of growth. For instance, 40 of the top 100 craft breweries across the country (based on dollar sales) are driving double-digit growth to the category.   MORE
