Craft Brewing and Distilling News for April 4, 2019April 4, 2019
•Craft beer sales in the U.S. decelerated slightly in 2018, according to new data from the Brewers Association. Last year, craft beer’s retail dollar value increased 7% to $27.6 billion on a volume rise of 4% to 25.9 million barrels. Craft continues to take share of the overall beer category—which was down 1% to 194 million barrels—achieving a 24.1% value share and 13.2% volume share last year. Still, the craft segment has seen progress slow the past few years, and both volume and value growth decelerated by about one percentage point in 2018 compared with the prior year.Subscribe to Shanken News Daily’s Email Newsletter, delivered to your inbox each morning.
