With the rise in demand, New Holland Brewing Co. recently expanded distribution to New England.  The brewery celebrated its growing footprint in Massachusetts, Connecticut and Rhode Island last month.  L. Knife & Son companies are partnering with the brewery for the distribution expansion.

According to the Census Bureau, in 2012, the beer industry employed 26,077 people, up from 22,252 in 2007; however the average number of employees per business was nearly halved and payroll per employee changed little.
