Inc. 500|5000 Honors New Glarus Brewing Company for 3rd Year in a Row!
Inc. 500|5000, which earns their name by tracking the fastest growing private companies in the United States, began in 1991 with the 100 fastest growing private companies in the nation. In 1992, they expanded this listing to include the Top 500 fastest growing national companies. In 2007 they expanded their listings even farther, with the Top 5000 fastest growing private companies in the United States, living up to the name that we know them by today. Due to their rapid growth, New Glarus Brewing Company was recently recognized as one of the Top 100 Food and Beverage Companies in the United States by Inc. 500|5000 for the 3rd year in a row.
New Glarus Brewing Company began humbly but quickly. Deborah Carey (President, New Glarus Brewing Company) raised the capitol and founded New Glarus Brewing Company in May of 1993. In June, 1993 Daniel Carey (Diploma Master Brewer, New Glarus Brewing Company) rolled out the first barrels. The combined efforts of Deborah and Daniel Carey placed New Glarus Brewing Company as one of the fastest start-ups of a microbrewery in the United States. From their humble beginnings (New Glarus Brewing Company produced 3,000 barrels the first year), Deborah and Daniel Carey have continually expanded, providing more and more of their friends in Wisconsin with their world class brews.
New Glarus Brewing Company is proud to rank among the Top 100 Food and Beverage Companies in the United States, as well as the Top 5000 fastest growing private companies in the nation for the 3rd year in a row. The research firm Sageworks states the Industry Benchmark growth for this three year period is 20.47%. During this period, New Glarus Brewing Company showed a 110.6% growth in the last 3 years. This is despite the fact that New Glarus Brewing Company continues to distribute in Wisconsin exclusively. Therefore, the credit for this accomplishment lies not only on the shoulders of Dan and Deb Carey, but much of this honor is due to the continual support of all their friends in Wisconsin. Cheers!!
