6 Stories That Will Shape the Beer Business in 2024
“Well, here we are. The beer industry is worse off than it was 12 months prior….. Rather than dwell on the past, let’s look ahead to the year to come. Sure, the American beer business got it from all directions in 2023, but is there more trouble ahead.
In no particular order below are my top picks for the major commercial and cultural story lines that will reshape the brewing industry, for worse or better in 2024.”
On tap in 2024: More Modelo, tequila, canned cocktails, whiskey and non-boozy beverages
“Spending on alcohol rose slightly in 2023, but most of the sales growth came from Modelo beer, canned drinks, tequila, whiskey and non-alcoholic options – trends likely to continue in 2024. What will be the boozy beverages of choice in 2024? For now, last year’s favorites like Modelo Especial, tequila, ready-to-drink cocktails, and non-alcoholic beverages too, all look to have staying power.”
How Non-Alcoholic Wine And Perfume Are Similar – Giesen Winemaker Explains
“With Dry January in full swing, many consumers are seeking non-alcoholic beverage choices, and fortunately the wine, beer, and spirits industry has been introducing many new options over the past two years. This makes sense, given that the category is one of the fastest growing in the past year, with a volume increase of 31.2% in 2023 compared to the previous year.
One winery that is making a big splash in the non-alcoholic category is Giesen. Based in New Zealand, Giesen has been making wine since 1981, but only started producing its zero alcohol wines in early 2020.”
