Craft beer made the cover of the Philadelphia Inquirer yesterday as Rick Nichols details the recession defying success of local craft beer.

[Dogfish Head] beer sales are up a phenomenal 40 percent over last year, 45 percent if you include its first foray into the Nevada market.

What is more remarkable is that those aren’t unremarkable numbers for local craft brewers. At Downingtown’s award-winning Victory Brewing, sales were up close to 30 percent; at smallish Sly Fox near Phoenixville, hovering close to last year’s 38 percent gain.
