We Still Have a Long Way To Go

A couple of graphics from an article about the state of America's beer industry in The Atlantic...

Sigh.  Bud Light sold about five times as much beer (in dollar value) as the entire craft beer segment in these United States.  The good news is craft beer sales are growing and the majors are losing market share... but there's still an incredibly long way to go.  Still and even, 1.882 BILLION dollars in craft beer sales is pretty damned impressive.  America's beer industry is rather healthy, methinks.  As for us?  We'll keep doin' our part.

There's a lot more at the link, including the top imported beers in the USA.

Updated, somewhat later.  This subject hit the Twitterverse, too.  One such:

I like that "low information drinkers" thing.


  1. I'm not a really big beer drinker, but I DO like my beer when the mood hits--and you're right, it's a sorry state, Buck!

    1. My mission in life is to fix beer drinking in America... but sometimes ya can't fix "stupid" coz it doesn't WANT to be fixed.


Just be polite... that's all I ask.
