I am curious to see what this sudden influx of breweries will do to the market and how the market will react to all the varied options. Some breweries out there are doing incredibly well for themselves and produce such wonderful brews but there are others that, at least to me, feel a little hurried or sub-par altogether, and worse yet there are some that are completely underrated and deserve more hype than they get and those which are overrated. How will all these breweries thrive in a state that (while drinking the second most beer in the country, and tenth most craft beer) has a fraction of the population? Hardly any of these beers make it across state lines, beyond Surly what kind of market potential does MN Craft beer have across the country, even regionally? My overall worry is that like many restaurants we will see breweries (great and not so great) shutter their doors due to a quick over-saturation of the market. I think with all the focus on what is new new new, the craft community has little focus on the sustainability of this kind of growth and rapid expansion or what that may look like long term, what are the long term goals? Our oldest craft breweries still aren't on par with the likes of Deschutes or Boulevard or Great Divide or Founders in terms of market share or accessibility nationally; I personally think that for new small local/community oriented breweries to further establish themselves bigger and older breweries should start reaching out into new markets to make room. So as drinkers (and brewers) I say yes support your local brewery, vote with your dollar, but encourage them to dream bigger and do more. I have yet to see any collaborations among brewers in our fair state and I would love to see Summit and Schells and Surly start to trickle out regionally making room for even more little guys and better yet really waving our flag to the rest of the country. Thoughts?
