Beer industry provides 5,000 jobs in N.D.
An economic impact study shows the beer industry is a major source of employment in North Dakota.
The National Beer Wholesalers Association and the Beer Institute recently released the 2005 Beer Industry Economic Impact study.
The beer industry provides 5,523 jobs for North Dakota residents and generates more than $99 million in annual wages and $59 million in excise and consumption taxes, the survey shows.
"The economic climate of North Dakota would be drastically different if not for the beer industry's impact here," said David Rehr, NBWA president.
Nearly 1.8 million Americans are employed directly and indirectly by the beer industry.
