Episode 168 - Craft Beer, the Local Model
In this episode, we discuss the importance and the impact of small independent craft brewers to the communities they are in. When discussing just the segment of “craft brewers” in America, 27 of those breweries (>.5%) are making 54% of total volume of “craft beer” made. This means, much of the craft beer in the USA is being produced by the other 5000+ very small local breweries. Nearly all the breweries in South Dakota are hyper-localized. They serve the surrounding neighborhoods and communities. SoDak breweries follow the local craft brewery model. We do not have mega-breweries or international conglomerate malt beverage manufactures in our state. South Dakota is one of the last states to reexamine the laws governing this industry. Is now the time to look at our laws to see if we can modernize the rules to fit the reality of what the brewers in South Dakota are?
