Craft breweries have created new excitement and growth in the beer industry over the past several years, although these companies are much smaller and their production volumes much lower than mainstream breweries. Gonzaga University consistently appears in the top echelon of college basketball teams, making it to the Sweet 16 again this year and remaining competitive year after year against colleges with more prominent athletic programs and much larger student populations and endowments.
The beverage industry has its craft breweries. College basketball has Gonzaga University. And the energy efficiency services industry has Servidyne.
