Default What trends are next.

A lot of craft beer Mag's that ive been reading seem to think that breweries and drinkers are going to be trending towards session beers. I don't think Ipa's and eccentric "series" beers are going anywhere, but what do you think?

I think sour beers are the next thing, and beers with a super high malt profile. The market is some what saturated with the run of the mill stuff, getting outside of the box is a fast way to get some market share.

There's just too many IPAs out there. There's breweries that make multiple versions, breweries that only make them, it's a little crazy. I believe session beers are the next big thing also, at least I hope so.

Ipa's are the #2 seller for craft breweries so I think they are here to stay, and that's fine by me. There are a lot of low gravity quaffers that I find myself frequenting. Including Cain's dark mild (great beer), shiner ruby redbird, and various pale ale, kolsch, Blonde and light lagers. Seems like saisons are on a roll as of late also.

Session beers are already the next big thing.

Other than the odd "session IPA," I haven't noticed an increase in session beers.

I doubt it, because the market is still driven by the consumer and not the brewer/connoisseur. Beer snobs like sours, Joe Craftbeer aint ready for them.

IPA will remain a staple for the forseeable future. Sours are still popular, but I think that session beers, or more precisely, "Classic" lighter beers like blondes, cream ales, etc. will grow in popularity. More and more people are trying out craft beer and for many of them the lighter styles are more accessible and more craft breweries are brewing them. Plus people that spent time drinking the stouts and IPAs and such are trying the lighter styles again and appreciating them for what they are, rather than bashing them because they are like the mass produced light lagers.

That's what I think.
