Tree House Brewing Company has been listed among the 50 fastest growing craft breweries in the United States by the Brewers Association [BA] – a not-for-profit trade group representing small and independent craft brewers.
On Thursday, the Brewers Association released their list of the 50 Fastest Growing Craft Breweries in the United States.
Tree House Brewing Company, based in Charlton, was ranked #45. The brewery was founded Brimfield in 2011 and moved to Monson in 2013. The brewery moved to Charlton in May 2017.
Tree House joined two other Massachusetts craft breweries on the list -- Hopsters Brewing Co. in Boston [#15] and Riverwalk Brewing Co. in Newburyport [#27].
According to the BA, the breweries listed represent roughly 10 percent of the total craft growth by volume for the year, and include 13 brewpubs, 35 microbreweries, and two regional craft breweries. The breweries experienced a median growth of 163 percent with the median size being 1,350 barrels of in-house production in 2018. Breweries on the list range from 50 barrels to more than 40,000, and grew from less than 70,000 barrels collectively in 2017 to more than 170,000 barrels in 2018.
“Even as market competition continues to increase, these small and independent breweries and brewpubs demonstrate there are still growth opportunities across a diverse set of regions and business models,” said Bart Watson, chief economist, Brewers Association.
