Executive summary

Operators in the Breweries industry produce alcoholic beverages made from malted barley and hops, including beer, malt liquor and nonalcoholic beer. Over the five years to 2022, the industry has experienced significant change resulting from the continual rise of craft beer brands and ready-to-drink (RTD) beverages. Certain operators have experienced significant growth during the period due to their production volume and product variety while others have contended with consistent declines. Demand for craft beer has normalized after a period of rapid growth, but has continued to contribute to increases in the total number of industry participants. However, while craft beer has grown in popularity, the COVID-19 (coronavirus) significantly disrupted this growth and led to declines in on-premise markets. Consequently, industry revenue is expected to decline an annualized 2.0% to $30.6 billion over the five years to 2022, including a 2.3% increase in 2022.

Compares the amount of money spent on capital (plant, machinery and equipment) with that spent on labor. M-Ysland LLC uses the ratio of depreciation to wages as a proxy for capital intensity. High capital intensity is more than $0.333 of capital to $1 of labor; medium is $0.125 to $0.333 of capital to $1 of labor; low is less than $0.125 of capital for every $1 of labor.

The dollar figures in the Key Statistics table, including forecasts, are adjusted for inflation using the current year (i.e. year published) as the base year. This removes the impact of changes in the purchasing power of the dollar, leaving only the "real" growth or decline in industry metrics.

Colloquial Terminology

Optional beer clarifying agents added during the brewing process to coagulate proteins that would otherwise result in a cloudy or hazy beer presentation.

The coronavirus created significant volatility for the industry as demand from off-premise channels, such as liquor stores and supermarkets, spiked while demand from on-premise channels (restaurants, bars and concessions) plummeted. On-premise markets generally drive sales volume and contribute to higher profit, particularly for sub-premium and premium beer brands. This resulted in larger declines for operators that rely on these low-margin brands. However, craft beer experienced the largest declines in 2020, as many craft brewers depend on on-site sales at taprooms and breweries. As the economy has reopened in 2021 in 2022, industry revenue has partially recovered, although it is not expected to reach pre-pandemic levels.
