Sales down 3 years in a row:
But you can't blame this on me. I'm still doing my part.
I'm not to blame either. And this is one thing nobody can blame Obama for!
Yesh indeedy, time to bailout those shlackers! Gimme another microbrew, i'm out.
This is an inaccurate blog title that coincides nicely with a biased report as the microbrew and craft brewery industries are on a tear my friends and have been for years. This is just MSN trying to help out its buddies wo have been slow, and unwilling to adjust to a significant change in customer preference. Bear in mind that these companies are the ones who thought there were enough idiots out there who would believe that changing the neck of a bottle will affect beer flavor. Sadly, they were right becuase those people are out there though the beer flavor still sucks!
So no, the beer industry is not in a slump, its the macro breweries, and they've been in one for a few years now.
I disagree that the title is inaccurate. As for the report being "biased", that depends on what data is being reviewed and what info is being extropulated.
As even a lush like myself knows data can be manipulated.
YOU, for example, have chosen to compare microbrew vs macrobrew. And NOT the overall dollar amount of beer sales. That would include both. And that would indeed be "the beer industry" as a whole.
And that makes your statement "biased" if not inaccurate.
Although I back your statement that bottle shape does not affect flavor and even sober people are stupid. Bottle COLOR, however, is a huge factor. So always go for Brown Glass or cans.
