Beer and Spirits Choices and Trends Among High Frequency Wine Drinkers
This report sheds light on beer and spirits consumption among the segment of consumers that drives the market for wine sales. Beer and spirits producers, distributors, and marketers will find this report essential in analyzing opportunities in this market segment. Based on a survey of nearly 1,000 high frequency wine drinkers (those who drink wine, on average, either daily or several times a week), the report details the consumption frequencies and trends among this population of 34 million consumers. The beer and spirits usage of high-end wine buyers (those high frequency wine drinkers who buy wines costing over $20 on a monthly or more often basis) is also featured in the report. The rise in popularity of craft beers is a focus, with details on the correlations of wine and craft beer consumption and the perceived attributes of craft beers that are driving this trend. Spirits consumption and preferences are detailed by type and brand. Data on the use of social media to discuss or obtain information about wine, beer, and spirits is included. Reporting is segmented by respondent generation, gender, consumption frequencies of craft beer, spirits, and wine, and differences between high-end wine buyers and other segments. The price is $495 for download of the PDF report. Custom data analysis and tabulation is available on request. WSB1
