Doom Gloom and Craft Beer

With all of the news media outlining the fact the entire global economy is totally f'd and we are all doomed, you may ask yourself where's the silver lining?  Well in craft beer of course.  Apparently as the global financial crisis unravels, most individuals are drowning their sorrows with craft brew.  According to the Brewers Association independent craft brew sales were up 15% in the first half of 2011.  Craft beer measured by production volume increased 14% in the first half of 2011. 

Another measure of the craft beer movement success is the number of breweries in planning which is nearly double what it was last year.  See there it is.  The silver lining is delicious and gets you kind of light headed too.  Pretty cool, huh?
