Cheers to Craft Beers!

By on March 4, 2008 @ 7 PM (3 Comments)

This article over at STLtoday announces that craft beer sales are up 12% last year. Money quote:

“Sales by independent craft brewers grew 12 percent by volume and 16 percent in dollars last year, according to the Brewers Association”

It also mentions that since 2004 craft brew dollar sales have grown 58%, and that craft brews are now 5.9% of all retail sales in the U.S.

Point is, we’re getting there folks. Keep buying the good stuff and enjoying it for the treat it is. Make every craft beer session a memorable event – relax, sit down and enjoy it in silence or with the company of friends. Pull the flavors out, note the aromas, look at it in the glass, study it, make sweet sweet love to it. You get the idea.

    I am looking to buy bottled beer from an independent brewer that can place my logos on it. Anyone have any good referrals to provide? I don’t know where to start, but want a good beer.

    Check out for that – only one beer offering (a Blonde Ale) but they can do corporate logos for you. On their site click on “Private Label” and then “Corporate Logo Beer.” You can also call them at 1-888-840-BEER (2337). Hope this helps.

    This is good news! Hopefully sales will continue to rise so craft brewers can compete with the big guys on hop prices. Beers are getting way expensive.
