A new economic study commissioned by the National Beer Wholesalers Association (NBWA) and the Beer Institute shows that 8,527 jobs are impacted by the beer industry in Mississippi and account for $300 million each year in wages and benefits. The beer industry contributes $1.2 billion annually to Mississippi's economy and generates $242 million annually in business, personal and consumption taxes. That's big!
