Report: Beer is Big Business in PA
The Legislative Budget and Finance Committee study released today found more than 100 breweries operating at the end of 2011. The study goes on to say that Pennsylvania breweries have a direct impact on the state's economy of more than $1 billion.
The study says more people are investing in plants and equipment, and more brewery-related workers are being hired.
The committee suggests changes to the Liquor Code in response to the boom in craft breweries.
To celebrate the findings of the report, mark February 2 on your calendar so you remember to attend the first-ever Bradford Brewfest at St. Bernard’s Auditorium.
