Lighter, sweeter & totally new takes on beer made for passive drinkers
Implications - Today, beer remains the beverage of choice among Americans who drink alcohol. Although men are still the primary beer consumer, accounting for more than 80 percent of the beer consumed (Beer-Brewing.com), there is still a tremendous opportunity for beer brands to capture female alcohol drinkers. Women tend to choose lighter beers and specialty brews, which means beer brands can experiment and create new takes on beer and beer-related products (such as ice cream) to capture the female demographic. In addition, these offbeat brew products may also appeal to more passive drinkers who are more likely to choose a novelty beer than a classic one, just for the fun of it.
