Hi mmaley,

The 10 largest US breweries in 1970 were:

1    Anheuser-Busch, Inc. 	22,201,811 	18.2
2    Jos. Schlitz Brewing Co. 	15,129,000 	12.4
3    Pabst Brewing Co. 		10,517,000 	8.6
4    Adolph Coors Co. 		7,277,076 	6.0
5    F & M Schaefer Brewing Co. 5,749,000 	4.7
6    Falstaff Brewing Corp. 	5,386,133 	4.4
7    Miller Brewing Co. 	5,150,000 	4.2
8    Carling Brewing Co. 	4,819,000 	4.0
9    Theo. Hamm Brewing Co. 	4,470,000 	3.7
10   Associated Brewing Co. 	3,750,000 	3.1

Total Barrelage Of All U.S. Brewers in 1970: 121,861,000 barrels.
Top 10 Brewers' Percentage of Total U.S. Barrelage: 69 percent.


Based upon the fact that the total barrelage of all U.S. brewers in
1970 was 121,861,000 barrels, I have calculated and shown the
percentage market share for each brewer.
