For Washingtonians, craft beer is an ever-growing community. The state is ranked as the fifth-highest nationally in its number of craft breweries, boasting 428 in operation at the end of 2020. The same data showed that per 100,000 adults over the age of 21, there were 7.5 breweries — the ninth-highest nationally — meaning craft beer is nothing new.
