Just as the overall economy has been slowly stabilizing, so has the on-premise alcohol segment. After almost five years of steep declines, 2012 marked the first year of modest beverage alcohol consumption increases, with spirits and wine leading the push into positive territory.

According to the Beverage Information Group's Cheers On-Premise BARometer Handbook 2013, spirits consumption increased 1.6 percent, wine 0.5 percent and beer 0.1 percent on-premise.

The 10th edition of the handbook, the BARometer data — which focuses on beverage alcohol trends, according to a news release — now includes preliminary consumption figures for 2013. Also added this year is consumer information for the on-premise segment, including the drinking habits of Hispanics.

The handbook/CD can be purchased at bevinfostore.com.
