One industry that came roaring back from the Great Recession that hit the United States between December 2007 and June 2009 is the brewing industry, according to data released this month by the Census Bureau.
This resurgence has been largely driven by small businesses—breweries that employ 19 or fewer workers.
Between 2007 and 2012, the net number of brewing establishments in the United States increased by 471, with the total number of establishments climbing from 398 to 869—an increase of 118 percent.
