Craft beer sales closing in on California wine revenues Screen Shot 2016-03-23 at 4.21.39 PM

Source: Brewers Association (Data Methodology at this link)

The gap narrowed in 2015: U.S. Craft Beer: $22.3 Billion - Calif Wine: $24.6 billion

According to numbers from research firm bw166.com and published in Wines in Vines, 2015 U.S. wine sales totaled $38 billion. Since California Wine Institute data estimates that that California represents 65% of U.S.dollar sales that means $24.6 billion in 2015 U.S. wines sales came from California.

Craft on top by end of 2016?

If current growth rates continue -- 16% for craft and 3% for wine -- that means U.S. craft beer could overtake the entire California wine industry by the end of this year: $25.8 billion versus 25.3 billion.
