While many believe that the growth and popularity of breweries will eventually flatten or decline, especially with more supply hitting the market, Agenda research shows that breweries could actually be more popular in 2017.
We polled our 21,000+ Agenda daily newsletter subscribers and asked: Will going to Charlotte breweries become more or less popular in 2017? The results:
- Same level of popularity: 66.07%
- More popular: 27.34%
- Less popular: 6.59%
Only two breweries opened in 2016, but Charlotte will likely see at least four new breweries in 2017.
