NBWA Releases June Beer Purchasers’ Index

The June BPI rose above the benchmark (50) to 54 while the At Risk Inventory (ARI) measure also remained slightly above the benchmark (50) at 51. Looking across the past nine years of the survey, the current BPI of 54 does not match the past survey average of 60 for June; however, the June index does point to a few signs of strength in the beer market as purchasing activity increased for five of the seven measured segments.
