Economic Impact


When most people think about the attributes of beer, words like crisp and refreshing come to mind. But our products mean a lot more than that. We directly employ more than 1 million Americans in virtually every corner of the U.S. These jobs help strengthen many sectors of the economy with a payroll of more than $32 billion and federal, state and local governments receiving tax revenues in excess of $44 billion annually.

The nation’s malt beverage producers, importers, and distributors are dedicated to enhancing the quality of life in neighborhoods large and small. Through our charitable contributions, civic and community support, we provide emergency and disaster relief, fund scholarship programs, and sponsor local festivals and entertainment events.
