Overall Beer Production Down, but Craft Beers Thrive

Consumer demand for craft beers continued to rise in 2013, but not enough to keep overall beer demand from going flat. As a result, total U.S. beer volume sold in the U.S. fell slightly (1.4%) to 2.8 billion 2.25-gallon cases, compared to 2.84 billion in 2012, according to market tracking firm Technomic. (USA Today)
