After three years of declining sales, shipments of domestically sold beer are up by more than 1% in the United States this year. Sales of light beer and specialty beer, such as Budweiser Light Platinum, Shock Top, and Blue Moon, have been the driving force in the resurgence of U.S. breweries.
While sales of specialty, craft, and small-market beers have improved dramatically, many of the traditional, full-calorie beers that were once the staples of most breweries have fallen behind. In the five years ending in 2011, sales of Budweiser, which was once the top-selling beer in the country for years, have fallen by 7 million barrels. Sales of Michelob are down more than 70%. Based on data provided by Beer Marketers INSIGHTS, 24/7 Wall St. reviewed the nine large or once-large beer brands with a five-year decline in sales of 30% or more...

Mold Milwaukee and Schlitz. Can’t believe they have survived. Luv Sam Adams beers, especially the Cherry Wheat.
You should get our more. There is a lot of swill on the market today, but there’s more great beer than ever before as well. There’s just more beer choices period, now than ever. The big brewerys have lost a lot of the market to smaller brewerys.
If I had to choose one beer for the rest of my life (although I do not understand anyone who sticks to only one by choice) - it would be Boston Lager by Sam Adams.
I bought Michelob 3 weeks ago and Pabst 2 days ago.
My uncle used to drive a delivery truck for Schlitz.
There's no need to drink swill, pard. There are more "craft" brews available today than in the last hundred years.
Right. Those Bud Light and Coors Light. Ugh. Alaska Amber or any IPA beer - but domestic manufactured stuff, yuk. Small breweries brew, Bud and Coors et al, they manufacture beer.
One beer, Yuengling.
Sorry. You just can’t go fishing properly with Sam Adams or a microbrew. The cheaper the beer the better fishing. It’s like a Laffer curve for rednecks.
Michelob messed up when they abandoned the distinctive curved bottle.
That is my indian name - “Nine Beers”
I’m off beer....been drinking hard cider for the last 4 months....really love it! (so far, Woodchucks is my fav!)
But when I do drink beer, it is Sam Adams IPA
All hail the micro brews!
Do your own DD...but PBR in a bottle is getting competitive with Bud in a lot of âsmall local barsâ...sometimes referred to as âdivesâ in the good olâ days!
Schlitz, for years America’s best-selling beer, went out of existence around 1980. The Schlitz sold now is just the name, not the same company or recipe. It’s like Grain Belt in that regard.
I miss POC
Now that is a great line.
Red Bridge doesn’t make me sick. That’s about all I’ll say for it.
