“The beer industry is really trending toward craft beers. The big macro-beers, the Budweisers of the world, are really losing a very small amount of market share every year, a percentage point or even less than that. But it means a lot to the craft brewers,” he said. “If we can keep that trend going and keep introducing folks to good craft beer, that means there are more customers and more sales available for everyone to get a piece of and to get their brewery up and going and stable and to continue brewing for years and years and years.”
