62 - CAPE GAZETI - Friday, September 1 - Monday, September 4,2006 Study shows beer industry boosts to state's economy Millions generated; empmvment abounds According to an economic impact study condu.cted by John Dunham & Associates and spon- sored by the National Beer Wholesalers Association (NBWA) and Beer Institute, the beer industry generates $153,355,362 annually in wages and benefits and contributes $444,571,499 to the state econo- my. The industry provide jobs for 5,629 citizens of Delaware, directly or indirectly. "The independent family busi- nesses that distribute beer to retailers large and small are doing their part to keep America's econ- omy strong. These families have been ingrained in their communi- ties for generations and support the local economy, including cre- ating jobs for their neighbors," said Craig Purser, president of NBWA. "This is an industry that prides itself on providing good paying jobs and quality benefits for its employees." "This study demonstrates that the beer industry is more than just those who make and distribute our products," said Jeff Becker, president of the Beer Institute. "We are an industry of farmers, can manufacturers, truck drivers, retailers, and many others located in virtually every state and local commUnity across the country. These hard-working men and. women place tremendous pride in delivering the quality products and services enjoyed by millions of responsible adults every day." In addition to strengthening the Delaware economy with job cre- ation, the industry plays a signifi- cant role in promoting responsible consumption of its products. Delaware's beer industry - which includes 12 brewers, four inde- pendent beer distributors and 1,141 retailers - has invested in communities across the state to develop and implement numerous programs to promote responsibili- ty and help fight alcohol abuse. These efforts, along with those of parents, law enforcement, educa- tors, and other community groups have led to significant declines in illegal underage drinking and drunk driving for the past two decades. America's beer distributors also work within a framework of indi- vidual state laws to ensure their products are sold only to licensed retailers who in turn are responsi- ble for selling only to adults of legal drinking age. The complete beer industry economic impact study, including a state-by-state and congressional district breakdown of economic contributions, is available at the Beer Serves America website, www.beerservesamerica.org. 103 Gosling Creek $349,900 3bed/2baths.
