Now at 50 breweries, the craft beer world has exploded in Nevada
Pennsylvania. Oregon. Wisconsin. Those are among some of the biggest craft beer states in the country. But what about Nevada? Well, we’re getting there.
Back in 2012, Nevada had 21 craft breweries; 11 years later, there are 51.
And Las Vegas itself is foaming over with new beer spots — breweries, bottle shops, draft rooms, even restaurants on the Strip offering locally-made beer.
Craft beer is big big business. Last year, it boasted revenues of $28 billion in this country alone, and the U.S. is home to 9,700 breweries.
And they’re all searching for just the right formula to satisfy the tastes of all those beer drinkers.
