BDN cites UMaine study about breweries

In an article about Allagash Brewing building a new tasting room on a former horse racing track in Scarborough, the Bangor Daily News cited a 2020 report by the University of Maine and the Maine Brewers’ Guild showing that craft brewers are a significant contributor to Maine’s economy, with $260.7 million in economic impact to the state in 2020 and employing nearly 2,400 people. The report also found that there were 165 active licensed brewers in the state this year, some with multiple licenses or locations, up from 155 in 2020.
