Vermont has been named the craft beer capital of the United States, according to a newly released study.

C+R Research released "The State of Craft Beer" report.

According to its research, Vermont is home to 11.5 breweries per capita.

That's equal to 151 pints of beer produced per adult older than 21.

In terms of economic impact, the study found craft beers account for $681 per Vermonter.

That's only second in the nation after Colorado.

The study says craft breweries have grown in popularity from about 1,500 in 2007 to more than 6,600 in July 2018.

The study was compiled with data from the Brewers Association trade group and the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau.

New Hampshire was ninth in breweries per capita, and sixth in terms of new craft brewery growth.
