Top States of the Beer Economy


#10 Virginia

In its pursuit of hoppy-ness, financial publisher Bankrate searched the U.S. for the top 10 states of the beer economy. Naturally, Virginia made the list, coming in at No. 10. The Commonwealth has nearly 45,000 jobs linked to the beer industry, and that number continues to grow every year. As of 2015, beer’s economic impact on Virginia was $8.1 billion. Cheers to that.

Rankings were determined using the 2015 Beer Serves America Study by the Beer Institute and the National Beer Wholesalers Association.
