In 2012 Georgia's 29 breweries and brewpubs employed 1650 people directly, and more than 31,000 others in related jobs such as wholesaling and retailing.[1][2] Including people directly employed in brewing, as well as those who supply Georgia's breweries with everything from ingredients to machinery, the total business and personal tax revenue generated by Georgia's breweries and related industries was more than $1.4 billion.[3] Consumer purchases of Georgia's brewery products generated another $366 million in tax revenue.[4] In 2012, according to the Brewers Association, Georgia ranked 48th in the number of craft breweries per capita with 24.[5]
