Craft beer is selling well in these tough economic times.
Paul Gatzer of the Brewers Association says small and independent brewers sold 10 percent more last year.
Paul Gatzer: "The American public is thinking about their own values and they're thinking about small and local and independent businesses. They're also thinking about the quality of the beverage they're tasting — it's never been a better time to be a beer drinker in this country."
The growth comes as overall beer sales in the country are down.
The wine industry is facing a similar problem. In Oregon, the amount of wine sold, fell 5 percent last year.
A study of vineyards in California found that people are still buying wine — but they're opting for cheaper bottles.
