Another Reason the Craft Beer “Bubble” Isn’t About to Burst

I mentioned it here a week ago, but in light of this story from the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, it deserves reiteration:

When addressing only sales in bars and restaurants, the market share of craft beer in the United States vaults from roughly 6.5% to 15%!

Or, in other words, when beer drinkers are looking for something special — as you do when you’re out for the night, rather than drinking at home  — they are increasingly turning to craft beers. And as the relatively brief history of microbrewing/craft brewing shows, it’s only a matter of time until those bar purchases begin appearing on a regular basis in the home fridge.
