The big question is are sales down due to the sluggish economy or due to the rising popularity of craft beer. I think it's the latter. I've actually read studies that indicate the sales of alcoholic beverages tend to increase during a bad economy.
Anyway, the question to you is "Would you drink a free Budweiser?" You will find a poll at the top right of my website. Here are your response options:
I'll keep the poll open for two weeks. I'm going to enter my response now. It may surprise you, but I would drink it—but only if someone put it my hand.
Any thoughts about the free Bud giveway? I'd really enjoy a free giveaway on my 4 star and 5 star rated beers. But that's not likely to happen soon....
