The Minnesota Beer Boom

Twin Cities Business Magazine┬áreports that craft beer growth in Minnesota in 2008 was up… drumroll… 74.5 percent. Holy moly. The national rate was 6 percent. [via Captain’s Chair, which has additional perspective]

    Too bad there was a really good brewing company that couldn’t start up because of this and thier economy. So, investors, hows that stock market treating you?

    If I had $100,000 lying around… and I wasn’t already trying to launch a magazine… I think Minnesota craft brewing might well be the smartest place to put it. It’s going to level off eventually, but it feels like that’s going to be a couple years from now, if not further down the pike.
