School of Economics study cited in BDN article on craft breweries

The Bangor Daily News cited a March 2017 study from the School of Economics at the University of Maine in an article on craft breweries in Maine. The Maine Beer Box, a cargo container fitted with 78 taps, will be shipped to the Leeds International Beer Festival in the United Kingdom. The box brings Maine craft brews to other countries, and returns with craft beer from its destination. It was shipped to Reykjavik, Iceland last year for its debut, the Bangor Daily News reports. The study was conducted by the School of Economics and released by the Maine Brewers’ Guild. During the past decade, an average of six craft breweries opened every year statewide, according to the study. The groups are collaborating on a new study to be released this fall.
