As for economic impact, money is generated through wholesale distribution, retail sale and sales at breweries. "Colorado comes in at No. 1 with an economic impact of $764 per person and Vermont at No. 2 with an economic impact of $681 per person," says the study. 
Vermont  also leads the way in craft beer production, with "151 pints per every adult that’s 21 years of age and over in the state." That amounts to nearly 19 gallons, per capita for 21+ adults.
