Revealing the invisible sector of the craft brew industry

Craft Beer: The 3 Biggest Threats to the Industry

Sean Williams - - The Motley Fool

The old adage states that "nothing goes up forever," but the craft beer industry would prefer to have you think otherwise.

Since the late 1970s, microbreweries have been popping up like weeds across the country, with some eventually blooming into national brewers.

At the current double-digit growth rate, we may have more than 6,500 breweries in this country by 2025.
