In 2011, the last year with complete data, the economic impact of the craft beer industry within San Diego County was $299.5 million (in wages, contracts, and capital expenses), according to a study performed by Vince Vasquez at National University. The study also found that the brewing industry’s sales for that year added up to $680.8 million. About 100 breweries are expected to be open by the end of 2013.
