The Beer Institute releases data (.pdf) showing that sales of beer at convenience stores increased 1.3% last year to total more than $16.7B. Sales at convenience stores mark the largest share of off-premise buying, fueled by a wider selection of imports, crafts and above-premium beers that are now available at outlets as consumers shift their preferences away from mainstay products from Anheuser-Busch InBev (BUD +0.4%), SABMiller (SBMRY.PK), and Molson Coors (TAP +0.3%).

    I take it that a 1.3% increase in sales dollars is a decrease in aggregate volume ..especially on a per capita basis.
