Franchise Info

If you're a serious Beer Geek . . . [read on] . . . we'd love to talk to you!

Craft Beer Cellar™ is on a quest to continue contributing to the advancement of the small but mighty, Craft Beer Industry — an industry that has more than doubled in sales in the past 10 years! As of February 2014, there were over 2700 Craft Brewers in the United States, with another 1700 in planning! The US beer industry is a $96 billion dollar industry, with Craft Beer only making only 10% - there's enormous potential for growth in this segment of the beer world!
