Among all brewers,not just craft brewers, Yuengling finished 2019 in 7th place in sales volume. Leading the way was Anheuser-Busch, MolsonCoors, Constellation, Heineken USA, Pabst Brewing Co., and Diageo. Brewers Association says 40 of the top 50 among all brewers are craft brewers.

Craft Beer Sales Numbers May Slump in 2020

Brewers Association says 2020 will be a tough year for some craft brewers on account of the coronavirus pandemic. You’d be hard pressed to find a bar open anywhere in the U.S. right now, so that will ding sales figures, more than likely.

“Although 2020 will be a markedly different year than 2019 for the craft brewing market, these companies are well positioned to help the craft category weather the current market uncertainty and rebound with the flavor, variety, and innovation that beer lovers have come to expect from small brewers,” Bart Watson, the Brewers Assocation’s chief economist, says.
