Default global trends in beer consumption

I am not endorsing a financial product here, but thought some of you might find some of the information interesting

If that's true, that mega brewers are using local ingredients and brewing locally in emerging markets, I think that's great. The article didn't mention, though, if the mega brewers are displacing local small breweries, which I suspect they are.

That's a really interesting little document, thanks for the post, kiwi.

And yes, I'd have to agree with Pappers - as much as I love to rag on the big brewers, the use of locally sourced ingredients is, at the very least, kinda neat (sorghum beer!?). I wish I could believe that it wasn't simply about 'bottom-line' economics (which, of course, it is), but I think that a growing global beer consumption has to be a good thing. In reality, it's only the big guys who can afford to get things like that established, so perhaps once they've done a bit more of the dirty work, and converted enough people to beer, then the grassroots (homebrewing, micro brewing) stuff will have a chance to blossom. From the manures of big-industry, the flowers of independent creation!
