Hi,Tom. I believe Wisconsin has about 90 craft brewers; Colorado has more than 100; Washington more than 100; Oregon more than 150 (including brew pubs); San Diego County, California, has 60! So, with 35, Minnesota would seem to be far from saturation. Craft brewers have about 6% of the U.S. beer market. By comparison, most people never thought the U.S. premium coffee market would amount to anything and today it is $3.5 billion and growing at 20%. I'll bet you a beer that in 10 years Minnesota will have 75 craft brewers. Cheers!
