The expectations of Panamanian businessmen are encouraging, because they expect that the demand for high quality artisanal beer in the country will continue to increase, so continuous improvement of the product will be key to the expansion of production.

Alejandro Quiodettis of Cervecería Maestra, explained to Martesfinanciero.com that "... The growth of artisanal beer brewing in Panama has gone from being a fashion to a trend, reason for which it is key to see first hand what the great American players do, so that the local company also conforms to innovations. Each one of us is looking for ways to improve each time, and we are aiming at that goal, to look for the best ingredients to prepare under high quality standards the handcrafted beer."

Ricardo Richo Fernández, from Cervecería Casa Brujas, said that "... What has happened in Panama with the movement of artisanal beer has caused not only a great boom in this segment, but has also benefited the traditional industry. The key is that we are making a great quality artisanal product that will continue to grow."
