Craft breweries are emerging all around the United States. According to the Brewers Association, craft beer sales grew 12.8 percent in 2015, and make up 12.2 percent of all beer sales in the United States. However, while the craft beer scene is growing nationwide, it hasn’t grown at the same rate in every U.S. city. But, lucky for us, Austin has a fantastic craft brewery scene!
