2014 Drink Trend – Craft Spirits

Local craft beer is a well-established trend now, but local distilled spirits have been coming on strong in the past couple of years. The Atlantic magazine reports that the number of small distilleries has jumped from 70 in 2003 to more than 600 today, and the American Craft Spirits Association reported a 27 percent growth in craft spirit consumption between the first half of 2012 and the first half of 2013, the most recent period for which information was available. During that same period, mainstream spirits fell by 1.3 percent.

This past summer Red Robin used craft vodka in its Wildbeer-y Can-Crafted Cocktail, and Brick House Tavern + Tap used craft blackberry moonshine in its Summerthyme Moonshine cocktail.

  • Stacie is one of the best recruiters that I have ever worked with!

    She is very professional, resourceful, thorough, prompt, efficient, and engaged. She is full of so much passion and drive. She had my best interest at heart throughout our three month process (we were only engaged with one concept the entire time). I began the process with a wealth of knowledge and experience, but Stacie was still able to add tons of value to my profile and preparation throughout the entire process. Stacie keeps in contact with me on a regular basis, even during my training. She played an essential role in me joining a great organization. Stacie is a great asset, and I am grateful that our paths crossed. I give her a five star rating!   Sincerely, Joshua Towbridge Stacie is one of the best recruiters that I have ever worked with!
