one out of every four ounces of beer sold in restaurants

Beer sales in restaurants According to a food and beverage writer, almmost one-fourth of all beer sold in the U.S. is consumed in restaurants. "Restaurants sold nearly a quarter of all beer sold in the U.S. last year, with their $23.6 billion representing a 9% increase compared with 2010, according to The Beer Institute." (quoting Janet Forgrieve, former food and beverage journalist now blogging)

Iced-tea Beer?

Forgrieve also passes along: "Craft-beer sales jumped 15% in the first half of 2011, according to the Craft Brewers Association. Total domestic beer sales rose about 2% last year. Slowing sales of brand-name beer has some big brewers branching out, CNBC reported. Molson Coors Brewing plans to roll out iced-tea-flavored Coors Light in Canada next month, as part of a push to bring back former beer drinkers who have moved on to wine and spirits."
