WESTMINSTER – Wachusett Brewing Co. has been listed among the top 50 craft breweries in the United States by the Brewers Association [BA] – a not-for-profit trade group representing small and independent craft brewers.

Last week, the BA released its annual lists of the top 50 producing craft brewing companies and overall brewing companies in the U.S., based on beer sales volume. Of the top 50 overall brewing companies, 40 were small and independent craft brewing companies.

Wachusett Brewing was ranked #43 overall and second in the state only to Boston Beer Company [Samuel Adams] — which was ranked #2 overall in the country.

“Although the market has grown more competitive, particularly for regional craft breweries with the widest distribution, these 50 small and independent brewing companies continue to lead the craft brewing market in sales through strong brands, quality, and innovation,” said Bart Watson, chief economist, Brewers Association.

Wachusett Brewing Co. — located in Westminster — was established in 1994 and is now one the largest breweries in New England.
