We won't help you move for  beer but we will help you with your beer research. Just released this week, the "Beer Serves America" report, put together by the Beer Institute and the National Beer Wholesalers Association, takes a look at the economic impact of beer. According to the report,  "the beer industry employs more than 2 million Americans, providing nearly $79 billion in wages and benefits. The industry pays over $49 billion in business, personal and consumption taxes."  They've got great infographics on their page that allow you to see the economic impact of beer by state and even by congressional district. You'll also find several reports & presentations, as well as 2012 edition of the "Brewers Almanac"  which includes "production, tax-paid withdrawals, tax collections, consumption (total, state-by-state and per capita), agricultural statistics, imports, exports, financial statistics, employment, excise tax rates and methods of collection, and draft/package trends." And you can save your money for happy hour as all of this information is free!
