Third, the process allows for more controlled and accurate collection of state and federal taxes. Finally, it allows individual states to regulate the licensed beverages in a manner that reflect their own practices and beliefs. The distribution appears to be simple, but the specifics are very involved. After manufacturing, the brewer will take orders from wholesalers based on the stock needed to fulfill orders from retailers.

The third tier consists of the 531,000 retail establishments in the U.S. These retail establishments consist of traditional liquor stores, supermarkets, drug stores, membership clubs, and convenience stores, independently owned taverns, restaurants, nightclubs, and hotel chains. Beer comprises 61% or nearly $8 billion in sales at grocery stores yearly. Therefore, it is the most important beverage for retailers and should encourage them to understand beer drinkers. Although such high sales exist at grocery stores, according to VNU Business Publications, 45% of all beer purchases are made at convenience stores indicating a preference to pay a little extra for...
