San Diego is a perfect example of the growth in craft brewing. A study last year by the National University System Institute for Policy Research calculated the economic impact of craft brewing in San Diego County.
“Overall, we found that in 2011, San Diego craft breweries generated a $299.5 million direct regional economic impact, as well as $680.9 million in sales. This translates to 1,133 direct brew pub and 497 direct brewery jobs in San Diego County,” it said.
“To put this figure in perspective, Comic-Con International, San Diego’s largest convention, generates a $180 million regional economic impact,” cites the report.
