We of Massachusetts Love Our Beer

8/19/2008 12:01:00 AM
I'm more of a bourbon man myself, but I did also pick up a case of coronas recently for apartment guests. And while we're on the topic of bourbon, I just recently opened my bottle of 20 yr old Pappy Van Winkle's - it's DELICIOUS. Anyhoo, on to the news article.

Massachusetts beer shipments ran counter to the national trend in June, as the Bay State reported a 3.8 percent rise in barrels sold for the month. Nationally, shipments fell 2 percent to 19.5 million barrels, from 19.9 million barrels in May. National shipments were off 1.5 percent year-over-year in May. In Massachusetts, beer vendors shipped 412,000 barrels in June, compared to 397,000 barrels in May. The state’s shipments were down 1.2 percent in June on a year-over-year basis.

The article didn't have any data for July, but I'm sure we kept it up. Although a lot of our serious beer drinkers (aka college students) are typically gone for vacation during the summer, warm weather in Boston is more than enough reason to celebrate with a couple drinks. Especially if it would stop raining.
