beer%20craft.jpgBeer geeks are bigger than comic book ones. At least financially, according to a just-released report which found that craft breweries and brewpubs had a $299.5 million economic impact on San Diego in 2011, one and half times that of Comic-Con International. The study also shows that local small breweries are staffed with about 500 workers; brewpubs employ approximately another 1,100. [KPBS]
