The Session, or Beer Blogging Friday, is an activity where beer bloggers from around the world get together (not literally) to write their own perspective on a single topic. Each month, the Session is hosted by a different beer blogger, and I will be taking my turn for Session #80, on Friday October 4th.
Session #80 – Is Craft Beer a Bubble?
It’s a good time to be in the craft beer industry. The big brewers are watching their market share get chipped away by the purveyors of well-made lagers and ales. Craft breweries are popping up like weeds.
This growth begs the question: is craft beer a bubble? Many in the industry are starting to wonder when, and more importantly how, the growth is going to stop. Is craft beer going to reach equilibrium and stabilize, or is the bubble just going to keep growing until it bursts?
I look forward to reading everyone’s opinions about this. I have an opinion of my own, of course, but you’ll have to wait until October 4th to find out which way I lean.
I’ll be sending out a reminder toward the end of the month. Make sure to leave your contributions as a comment here or send them to @derekgharrison on Twitter to be included in the round-up.
