10 Fastest-Growing Craft Breweries In the U.S.

6. Boneyard Beer
Location: Bend, Ore.
2011 production: 2,968 barrels
2012 production: 8,650 barrels
Growth rate: 191%

What if you made arguably the best IPA in the Pacific Northwest and it was practically your second job? That's basically Boneyard founder Tony Lawrence's entire brewery backstory. After starting his career in 1989 washing kegs at Deschutes for founder John Harris to make enough money to keep snowboarding, Lawrence took brewing gigs at Firestone Walker in California and Three Floyds in Indiana. He came back to Bend in 2005 to open a brewery-specific metal fabrication business and basically built Boneyard from the scrap pile that gave the brewery its name.

That fabrication business is still intact and Boneyard's tattoo-style, gearheaded, adrenalized labeling, merchandizing and marketing still mesh perfectly with it. As do the brewery's potent, hop forward RPM IPA (7% ABV/50 IBU), Hop Venom Double IPA (8.9% ABV/80 IBU) and Notorious Triple IPA (12% ABV/80 IBU). With that trio hogging much of the horsepower, it's all too easy for Boneyard's strong Cascadian dark ales, including its Skunkape IRA partnership with Lib Tech Snowboards and Armored Fist (10% ABV/80 IBU) collaboration with Three Floyds to get lost in the scrapheap.
