Give Jim Koch points for consistency.

He’s built Boston Beer Co. from an industry upstart to an establishment player that is losing share and drinkers to a new generation of craft brewers. But along the way he hasn’t outgrown a penchant for taking shots at competitors.

National Beer Day: How Beer Gets the Economy in High Spirits

Every year, Americans consume copious amounts of beer. While per capita consumption has been holding steady, the number of people of legal drinking age has increased, and imports are up, as well as domestic production. Here's a more detailed look at the beer economy:

How much beer does America drink?

Recent data from the National Beer Wholesalers Association (NBWA) shows that last year, out of all alcohol consumed per capita by the more than 237 million Americans of legal drinking age, nearly half was beer. Americans consumed 2.86 billion cases of beers last year. Statistically speaking, every person of drinking age in the country accounted for nearly 2.5 gallons of alcohol, of which 1.24 gallons was for beer, 0.39 gallons was for wine and 0.87 gallons was for hard liquor.

America’s Beer Distributors Recognize National Alcohol Awareness Month

Kathleen Joyce - - National Beer Wholesalers Association

Throughout the month of April, the National Beer Wholesalers Association (NBWA) will be recognizing Alcohol Awareness Month, as highlighted by the U.S. Health and Human Services Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), to raise awareness about alcohol abuse.

"Alcohol is a unique product that is not for everyone," said NBWA President Craig Purser. "National Alcohol Awareness Month is an appropriate time to recognize that alcoholic beverages need to be effectively regulated to help combat abuse and to ensure they do not end up in the hands of those under the legal drinking age."

NBWA Applauds Steady Growth for Craft Beer

Kathleen Joyce - - National Beer Wholesalers Association

The National Beer Wholesalers Association (NBWA), which represents the interests of America's more than 3,000 licensed, independent beer distributors, applauds America's craft brewers for their continued growth and entrepreneurial spirit, which adds excitement to the American beer industry.

The Brewers Association (BA) released data today showing that craft brewers, as defined by the BA, continued steady growth last year as American craft beer production volume increased 6 percent on a comparable base – representing 12.3 percent market share by volume of the overall beer industry – and saw a 10 percent increase in retail dollar value, representing 21.9 percent market share. The data also indicate that craft brewers produced 24.6 million barrels of beer in 2016.
