More than 1,000 craft breweries have opened nationwide within the last year, the Brewers Association says.

The Boulder, Colorado-based organization on Tuesday (Aug. 6) announced its updated craft brewery and mid-year production statistics.

The association said there were 7,480 active craft breweries as of June 30 — up from 6,464 at the same time last year. It also noted that an estimated 2,500 to 3,000 breweries are still in the planning stages.

In Ohio, there are more than 300 breweries, along with about 60 in planning.

Meanwhile, the association reported that the craft segment increased 4% during the first half of this year. That mirrored the 4% growth reported for 2018.

“Growth continues to follow a similar pattern we have seen in the past few years, with steady rates in the low-to-mid single digits,” Brewers Association chief economist Bart Watson said in a prepared statement. “The majority of growth continues to come from microbreweries, taprooms, and brewpubs, whereas the distribution landscape remains more challenging for regional craft brewers.”

He said while demand for craft beer is increasing it's "difficult for all breweries to grow simultaneously. This is a sign of a maturing market that will likely continue in the coming years.”
