Drinks Americas' (OTC: DKAM) Highlights Brewbound Article On Strong Recent Growth In U.S. Craft Beer Sales

Stocks in this article: DKAM

LOS ANGELES, March 18, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Drinks Americas (OTC: DKAM; "Drinks Americas" or the "Company"), the exclusive United States broker for leading premium authentic Mexican beers currently present in 34 states with a strong distribution network in place, today highlighted strong and recent growth in U.S. demand for and sales of craft beer. According to a recent article by Brewbound.com author Chris Furnari, the craft beer craze has resulted in significant growth in craft beer sales. In the U.S. alone, craft beer sales are up 24% year-to-date as of February 23 rd.

The 24% increase in craft beer sales are factoring in IRI's U.S. multi outlet and convenience stores universe (MULC), which includes grocery, drug, Wal-Mart, Club, Dollar, Mass-Merchandiser and Military stores. In the Brewbound article, author Chris Furnani highlights exceptional growth in grocery stores, commenting "Perhaps more impressive is craft beer's performance in the grocery channel — craft is the third best-selling beer product in IRI-tracked supermarkets with 14.69 dollar share of the total category, up 1.83 versus last year."

Known to provide consistent coverage of the craft beer industry and Drinks Americas's premium authentic Mexican beer brands, Brewbound's main audience members include craft brewers, beer distributors and industry suppliers.  Brewbound delivers industry related content via www.brewbound.com and its email newsletter.

Timothy Owens, Drinks Americas CEO, commented on growth of sales, "Brewbound reinforces the trend that the demand for craft beer in the U.S. is present and vastly growing.  We are thrilled to see such growth in the craft beer sector particularly as it relates to the grocery channel – the channel that is frequented the most consistently by consumers. These data figures are factual and hopefully are a forecast of great things to come for the industry and our authentic Mexican Day of the Dead Craft Beer brand."
