The brewing industry has been through the wringer the past few years. The pandemic was the first domino to fall in a series of business battles: supply-chain issues making ingredients and equipment more expensive and hard to find; wildfires and smoke damaging the hop crops in the Pacific Northwest; and a labor shortage that’s encouraging us all hold our favorite beertenders extra closely.
And when you’re in the grind, trying to keep your head down and your staff’s spirits high, sometimes it’s comforting to get a pulse check from neighboring breweries. Are other breweries raising prices this year? I don’t want to be overly confident, but is my brewery the only one expecting growth in 2022?
You’re not alone in wanting to hear from others in brewing. And—spoiler alert—a majority of breweries are indeed expecting business growth in 2022! So where are these flourishing brewhouses investing, and what can you expect from this growing industry over the next 10 months?
As craft beer’s most trusted point-of-sale system, we at Arryved use our nationwide network of breweries to survey owners, managers, and more to create a comprehensive report on 2022 trends. We surveyed both customers and non-customers in a variety of business stages—from breweries just getting started to seasoned brewing vets.
What we found was exciting, insightful—and, in some cases, really surprising. Here’s a—shall we say flight?—of teaser questions to which you can expect answers:
● What’s the most profitable sales channel for breweries?
● How does annual revenue affect distribution?
● Where are breweries streamlining operations?

“I don’t think there’s any other industry that owners are so willing to collaborate and help each other out. It’s so awesome to see that I could talk to someone I’ve never met, but I know they’re a brewery owner, and we could start talking and share ideas and no one’s trying to keep secrets.”
