Statistics show beer consumption per capita (aside from a small abode in Katonah) is down for the last few years.
However, do not despair for the craft beer industry, as statistics also show a rising trend in the purchase of craft beer! I credit the breadth of craft brew flavors for this trend—distinct flavors that actually come through with each sniff and sip!
Now, don’t get me wrong, I like saying “Dilly Dilly” as much as the next person and have also been known to buy a 30 pack or have an ice-cold Pabst Blue Ribbon. I just want to applaud all of you who are open-mindedly embracing crafty quaffing by trying new flavors, styles and venues for craft beer.
