Press Release

The global beer scene has never been more exciting. There are places making beer that have never been brewing before. It’s growing in countries like Italy, Japan, Nepal and Ethiopia. There are more than 5,000 breweries in the US alone and 78% of adults of drinking age live within 10 miles of a local brewery.

For many travelers, beer tasting is an essential part of experiencing a place. However, craft beer doesn’t travel all that well – a lot of great beers are never distributed beyond their home state or city.
