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.
