    Presentation Title:

    The Contribution Of The Craft Beer Category To The Irish Economy

    Presentation Synopsis:

    The Irish Craft beer category is enjoying a sustained period of growth both at home and overseas. Bord Bia, in partnership with the Independent Craft Brewers of Ireland, has commissioned an update to the Craft and Microbreweries in Ireland study, an annual report on the category. The report looks at the growth in the number of brewers and volume throughput, employment, exports and market share as well as providing information on the economic impact of the category. The report will be the subject of my presentation, followed by a brief overview of the services available to craft brewers from Bord Bia.
