Including people directly employed in brewing, as well as those who supply Mississippi's breweries with everything from ingredients to machinery, the total business and personal tax revenue generated by Mississippi's breweries and related industries was more than $128 million.[3] Consumer purchases of Mississippi's brewery products generated more than $101 million extra in tax revenue.[4] In 2012, according to the Brewers Association, Mississippi ranked 51st (including the District of Columbia) in the number of craft breweries per capita with 3.[5]
