Industry News – Millennials shun beer and wine for spirits
In news that really didn’t surprise me at all, Millennials are more likely to be ordering spirits than beers or wines today. This doesn’t surprise me at all, its so easy to crack open a beer or pour a glass of wine at home, so why would people pay much more for the same in a bar. On the flip side, good spirits often represent a much higher cost of entry, $30+ a bottle, so its more economical to try them at least in a bar first. On top of that, a skilled bartender can add much more value to a spirit in its preparation into a cocktail than simply pouring a beer.
