When it comes to beer, the world’s leading beer companies are often grouped together, but the industry isn’t necessarily made up of a handful of companies.
Instead, it’s made up mostly of companies that have the same underlying philosophy and business goals.
And they’re all made up entirely of women, according to a new report.
That’s why there’s such a disparity in the industry when it comes the popularity of root beer.
“Women are really important in the root beer industry because they make a lot of these great root beers,” says Sarah Smith, the founder of Barq’s Root Beer.
“They’re the ones that make the most of the flavor and the water, so it’s great that women are making the beer that is really going to bring out the flavor.”
As part of its research, the company collected data on how many breweries were made up solely of women in the United States, with the most breweries in each state categorized as being owned by a single woman.
The average size of the brewery is a little less than 20,000 square feet.
The rest of the breweries in the survey were more like 50,000 or 60,000.
And while it may seem like the industry is all male, that’s actually not the case.
The percentage of female employees in the entire industry is closer to 20 percent, according a study published in The American Journal of Public Health.
And while the percentage of male employees in that same industry is also higher, Smith says that’s because many of the companies have more female employees than male.
“A lot of the women are working in marketing, but they’re also doing a lot more of the brewing, so they’re making more money,” she says.
And for the companies that do have more women in management and more women working in sales and marketing, that translates to higher profits, she says, adding that they can also make higher profits with fewer employees.
“We know from our own research that when we hire women in sales, we get better ROI,” she adds.
“And the more women you hire, the better it is for the ROI, too.”
But if you ask the question, what does that ROI look like?
And how does that compare to other industries, like construction or retail?
For the answer, The Verge took a look at some data from the Brewers Association, a trade group that represents more than 2,000 craft breweries.
The group’s findings showed that while the average number of employees for a craft brewery was around 15,000 in 2016, the number of female owners was closer to 7,000, or one woman for every 15,904 employees.
The study also showed that a female owner of a craft beer brewery had a higher earnings per employee than a male owner.
So how did the industry’s biggest women-owned companies stack up in terms of ROI?
And what did the average woman earn?
