Did you know that Montana has the 2nd highest number of breweries per capita in the United States?
Or that in just five years, the number of Montana breweries more than doubled?
At this year's Labor Day Report presentation, beer was on everyone's minds. After all, the event was held at the Blackfoot River Brewery. The Montana Department of Labor & Industry joined Governor Steve Bullock to talk about the current state of the Montana economy, and to highlight its challenges and successes. One such success was the creation of a new Master Brewer apprenticeship program that allows aspiring brewers to learn their craft on the job and to earn a state-recognized certificate.
In honor of the event and the growing industry that it highlighted, the Research & Analysis Bureau created the following infographic all about brewing. Enjoy!
