Breweries Responsible For Economy Boost In Asheville Area

The Economic Development Coalition says breweries contribute around one-billion dollars to the Asheville area economy.  

The recent study says the industry has grown by over 700-percent since 2011.  Breweries in Buncombe, Henderson, Haywood and Madison counties employed more than 2,500 people in 2016. 

Officials from the EDC say they can use the results of the study to market to companies outside the area and continue to grow.
