Breweries in Connecticut produce a wide range of beers in different styles that are marketed locally, regionally and nationally. In 2012 Connecticut's 22 breweries and brewpubs employed 430 people directly, and 12,000 others in related jobs such as wholesaling and retailing.[1][2] Including people directly employed in brewing, as well as those who supply Connecticut's breweries with everything from ingredients to machinery, the total business and personal tax revenue generated by Connecticut's breweries and related industries was more than $375 million.[3] Consumer purchases of Connecticut's brewery products generated another $105 million in tax revenue.[4] In 2012, according to the Brewers Association, Connecticut ranked 33rd in the number of craft breweries per capita with 21.[5]
