A Little Help

This is a longshot, but what the hay. The Oregon Brewers Guild maintains a wonderful collection of statistics about Oregon beer, like:
• Oregon is the second largest producer of craft beer in the US.

• Oregon is the 4th largest craft beer market in the US in supermarket sales.

• 37% Percent of all draft beer consumed in Oregon is brewed in Oregon.

• Oregon has the 4th highest percentage of beer draft sales in the US.

• Oregonians consumed ... about 12 percent of the total beer consumed in Oregon - the highest percentage of local craft beer consumption in the country.
I'm looking for stats like these about Washington. Neither website for the Washington Brewers Guild (which is badly out of date) nor the Washington Beer Commission collect these stats. Anyone have an idea how you might track them down?

Even better, what I'd really like are stats like Oregon's for both WA and OR--so how much of the two states' beer is consumed by the two states, etc. But that may be pushing it. Holler if you have a clue.

(Incidentally, Brian Butenschoen of the Oregon Brewers Guild gave me what he had, but obviously, he's not in the business of producing promotional facts about Washington State's breweries.)
