Your uncle is full of FAIL. If you look at the trend, prohibition led to a vast decrease in breweries, but the numbers have been steadily increasing since then.

Haha, I'm not going to insult your uncle, but if anything, I would say that they are on the rise.

It's a trend and not a fad. Americans will trade up in value and spend more for quality.

Tell your uncle that if it was a fad Bud would not be making an Ale to combat it.

Fad's are ignored, trends are joined in progress.
