Portfolio-wide off-premise dollar sales for the brewery increased nearly 21%, to nearly $84.3 million, in multi-outlet and convenience stores tracked by the firm last year. The company’s flagship 805 blonde ale ranked as the ninth best selling craft beer, growing dollar sales 12.7%, to $60.4 million.

In 2018, Firestone Walker ranked as the seventh largest Brewers Association-defined craft brewery by volume, after increasing production 12%, to 454,261 barrels of beer.
