This week we caught up with the Brewers Association’s Chief Economist, Bart Watson, to discuss the state of the craft beer industry in the United States and what we can expect from the economy looking forward. Is there a beer market “bubble”…? Bart shares with us some interesting statistics!
Bart is in charge of the Brewers Association’s statistical resources, including production surveys, economic analysis, and market research. In addition to providing industry data for members, his responsibilities include interacting with the media on economic and statistical issues.
Bart has a PhD in Political Science, and was a professor in the subject prior to working with the BA. Bart has a deep love for good beer and is an expert in beer industry statistics, the economics of craft beer and, of course, the craft beer market.
