Domestic Taxpaid Shipments Score Second Straight Gain; Mar Flips Positive; More Revisions Coming
Shipments picture improving, slowly but surely. Domestic brewers’ taxpaid shipments up for 2d straight mo in Jul, estimates Beer Inst: +280K bbls, +1.9%. That follows 700K-bbl pop in June. Then too, BI upped its Mar figure from -70K bbls, to +130K bbls, +0.9%. So, 7-mo domestic shipments now -707K bbls, -0.7%. And Beer Inst still “expecting significant revisions” from TTB for most mos this yr. While import shipments took a big hit in Q2 (-27%) and -14% for 6 mos, good chance that final figures for domestic shipments may be close to even thru Jul.
