The Brewers Association just released its list of Top 50 Craft and Overall Brewing Companies in the United States, based on beer sales volume. Pennsylvania craft brewers ranked #1 and #2 on the list. D.G. Yuengling and Son of Pottsville, PA ranked #1 on the list, and Boston Beer Co., which produces Sam Adams beer in Breinigsville, PA ranked #2 this year. Lehigh Valley Business reports on it here.

In addition to topping this chart, this means Pennsylvania ranks first in output of beer production from domestically owned breweries. The likes of Victory, Sly FoxTroegs, Yard’s and Straub add to significant output which makes Pennsylvania key to the national brewing seen. No wonder heavyweights like Dick Yuengling, Jim Koch, and Ken Grossman just appeared in Bethlehem at ArtsQuest for the Meeting of the Malts sponsored by the Brewers of Pennsylvania a couple of weeks ago.
