Craft brews are on the rise

Although the Big 3 American breweries (Now not American companies) Bud, Miller, Coors may be on the decline, craft and microbreweries are thriving. What is not taken into account is the ABV in these brews, which is more often than not 2-3 times as strong. While a Bud may be 3%, most craft are around 6-7%, with many being upwards of 8-9%. That's 1/2 or 1/3 the consumption, while maintaining the same intoxication level.
