We all know that craft beer is growing like crazy here in the U.S. of A., but did you know just how popular craft beer is outside our borders? A report released today by the Brewers Association shows that American craft beer exports increased 86 percent by volume and 97 percent by dollars in 2011, compared to 2010 figures.
Those are some pretty staggering numbers, especially in light of the lingering global recession. Turns out American craft brewers exported more than $23 million worth of beer to foreign markets in 2011.
