-The popularity of craft beers, focused around smaller production scales, style, connoisseurship, flavors and often aspiration helped the market return to growth during 2012-2015, after a decline over 2010-2011.
-Sales of Beer have increased through Convenience Stores, though sales through Eating, Drinking & Accommodation venues have declined. This reflects how more consumers prefer to have the beverage at home rather than going out.
-As the craft beer movement makes shelves increasingly crowded, manufacturers will need to produce more niche flavors in order to stand out from the crowd. This way, consumers will have the chance to try out novel tastes without getting bored with them, while brands will create the buzz and reinvigorate their images.
-Packaging will become increasingly varied, in order to help promote a ritual among consumers whereby opening the product signals the start of a period of relaxation and recuperation.
