    (ANSA) - PALERMO, AUGUST 26 - Artisanal beer production is growing in Italy in terms of revenue, size, production and volume.

    Over 60% of beer factories earn between 100,000 and 800,000 euros, over 51% make use of personnel on permanent contracts and the volume of beer produced on average has risen to 445 hectoliters, equal to 3.3% of the total hectoliters of beer produced in Italy. These are some of the figures from the third report on artisanal beer in Italy presented at Expo Milano 2015 by Unionbirrai and drawn up by ALTIS, Alta Scuola Impresa e Società dell'Università Cattolica di Milano.

    ''The production of artisanal beer has begun to do good things for Italian employment,'' Unionbirrai director Simone Monetti said. ''Today small producers are growing and have a large number of employees on permanent contracts. It is a sector in which there aren't any lay-offs.'' There are 750 beer factories in Italy, mostly in the northern and central parts. (ANSA).
