NORWALK, Conn., Jan. 12, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The beverage alcohol industry saw another transformational year filled with new trends, rules and regulations, and hot growth categories contributing to an ever-changing landscape. Building upon an already extensive 50-plus year history of producing and distributing beverage alcohol data, the Beverage Information Group presents its 2016 collection of handbooks.

Ranging from the Handbook Advance, the industry's earliest and most complete report on beverage alcohol sales and consumption, to the Liquor Handbook, which provides the most accurate and in-depth U.S. distilled spirits market information, the collection of 2016 Handbooks is comprised of several must-have items for industry professionals.

The 2016 Handbooks include information pertaining to various alcohol categories including liquor, wine, and beer, as well as the on-premise market, supermarket and convenience store data. The primary topics included are brand depletions, consumption trends, retail sales analyses, advertising demographics and consumer demographics.
