In addition, there has been a growing interest in low-alcohol and non-alcoholic beers, as health-conscious consumers seek alternatives to traditional beer options.

Trends in the market:
One of the key trends in the United States beer market is the rise of craft beer. Craft breweries have gained popularity among consumers due to their focus on quality, innovation, and local production. The craft beer segment has seen steady growth, with consumers willing to pay a premium for these specialty beers. This trend has also led to an increase in the number of craft breweries across the country, creating a vibrant and competitive market.
