We’ve taken regional looks at the most popular beer and liquor brands in New York City, Boston, Chicago, Washington DC, Florida, and Texas. We’ve examined average pour costs for 28 classic cocktails. We’ve even taken a look at the most popular draft beers and cocktails.
Now that we’re halfway through 2017, we decided to revisit our 2016 report to see which beer and spirit brands are ordered the most by on-premises establishments. Here’s what the data shows.
The following material aggregates alcoholic beverage order data from U.S. BevSpot users during the first six months of 2017. These BevSpot users represent bars & restaurants numbering in the high triple-digits, located in 43 states plus the District of Columbia. All figures represent percentages of orders in dollar terms.
Though tequila & mezcal haven’t seen any growth in their share of BevSpot spirit orders since 2016, this may be about to change. The Distilled Spirits Council, for example, has observed strong domestic tequila sales growth, particularly on the premium side of the market. This is worth watching, as a possible explosion of craft tequila is on the horizon.
