According to this guy the craft industry is taking a toll.

Quote:
In an interview with 24/7 Wall St., Beer Marketer’s INSIGHTS executive editor Eric Shepard explained that it is specialty beers and craft beers — not light beer — that have eaten into sales of traditional full-calorie beer in the past year.

While some of those percentages sound high,500,000 to 1.4 million barrels is still a crapton of beer. Sounds like people are slowly coming around a bit...

My grandpa drank that Old Mildew. I liked it too. Looks like sales dropped off dramatically around the time of his death. Hmm. Hmmmmm.

Sho' was! We're gaining ground,at least in as much as folks wanting more flavor in there beer. Whatever actual amount that might be. Not the least of which would also be quality of same.

My thoughts as well. They could try letting their prices lag a smidge to be more competitive, Try to win back some customers, or find new customers among younger beer drinkers.

If they're free, I don't object too much. Besides, MGD boils brats very, very well.

Speaking of boiled brats ( sorry this is off topic) has anyone else ever wondered if the beer infused with brats would be tasty? It not dont try it.
