BeerBoard Report:
COVID Reopening

The return of on premise sales and draft volume has continued to increase.

In this report, we take a look at the weekend of June 5-7 and compare that to our review of Memorial Day Weekend (May 22-25).

This review of insights and retail performance is part of an on-going series which tracks the reopening of America’s bars and restaurants.


COVID Reopening Report for the On Premise (June 5-7)

Currently, every state has opened on-premise dining or announced plans to do so. New Jersey is the last state to do so (starting June 15), albeit entirely outdoor dining.

The Open Rate (locations open and pouring beer) has grown from 16% on the weekend of May 8-10 to 45% over Memorial Day Weekend (May 22-25) to 66% the weekend of June 5-7.

Over the past two weeks, Volume Share was relatively flat among the three categories, with Imports seeing a slight bump (+0.7%) and Craft up 0.2%.

The Top 5 Styles remained unchanged over the past two weeks.

We looked at the weekend of June 5-7 and compared that against Memorial Day Weekend (May 22-25). The average number of taps pouring per location and percentage of taps pouring both continue to climb.
