beer-1087_1280x960.jpgLet’s face it, we’re doing really well in the St. Louis area right now.  We probably have more choices of beer than we’ve ever had.  As consumers, this is an awesome time to be drinking beer.

But are we reaching a point where it’s just too much?  Can we as a craft beer drinking community sustain this level of product choice?  My guess is no.

At last count over 900 different beers are available in the St. Louis area and as newer and for some people, more exciting, things become available sometimes the old favorites get moved to the side. Retailers, bars and restaurants only have so much space.

So what happens then?  What will we begin to disappear from our shelves?  What do you find yourself drinking less of and what wouldn’t you miss?
