Despite economic issues throughout the country, craft beer sales are still on the rise. I know I haven’t stopped enjoying my favorite craft brews, so I’m glad to hear that other people are still treating themselves as well. According to Tim Sheehan, CEO of L. Knife & Son, a top distributor for Anheuser-Busch, “It has not taken a big economic hit because most people consider it more of a staple than a luxury. On the higher-end brands, people are pretty passionate about them. They may drink less, but they’re going to continue to drink what they like.” (source)
The word on this was clearly evident at the Craft Brewers Conference & BrewExpo America in Boston last week – business is up and everyone’s talking about it.

Cheers to craft beer and to those who truly appreciate and enjoy it! Don’t ever settle for less than what you love.
