For the May/June 2009 The New Brewer, we present our annual Industry Review issue. In this issue, we examine how brewpubs, microbreweries, and regional breweries fared in 2008, along with the industry as a whole.
Cautiously optimistic craft brewers who so far seem to be weathering the current economic storm gathered in Boston April 21-24 for the Craft Brewers Conference.
A Note From the Editor
Jill Redding, Editor-in-Chief
This issue also includes most of our usual informative departments, plus brewery-generated news about the craft brewing community in the Brew News and Beer Releases sections; and new products and services from the allied trade in Industry Supplier News. In our back-page interview, we highlight Lazy Magnolia’s Leslie Henderson.
Cheers, and we hope you enjoy this issue of The New Brewer.
