Craft beer dollar sales in the U.S. rose 15% in the first six months of 2013, according to data from the Brewers Association (BA) trade group. Volume also rose over the same period, up 13% to 7.3 million barrels, compared to 6.4 million barrels in the first six months of 2012. Likewise, the number of craft breweries operating in the U.S. grew by around 450, to reach a total of more than 2,500 by the end of June. While craft beer continues to climb, overall U.S. beer sales were down 2% in the six-month period. The BA defines a craft brewer as an independent and traditional brewer producing less than 6 million barrels annually.
