Press Herald cites UMaine study in article on Maine Beer Box

A study released by the Maine Brewers’ Guild and conducted by the University of Maine School of Economics was cited in the Portland Press Herald article, “Maine Beer Box begins voyage to give local brews international exposure.” The custom-made shipping container filled with Maine craft beer is heading to Reykjavik, Iceland, where the beers will be the centerpiece of the country’s largest beer festival later this month, according to the article. The study found Maine’s craft breweries added $228 million to the Maine economy and employed 1,600 people last year, the Press Herald reported. Mainebiz also cited the study in a report on the Maine Beer Box.
