Support your local breweries as craft beer sales decline
PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) - Local craft beers are in a sales slump, but you can help!
Arizona’s Family reporter Gibby Parra dropped by Phoenix Beer Company to talk about the decline in craft beer sales and how we can all pitch in to help keep these local businesses thriving.

Ready-to-drink cocktails is really pinching a lot of craft beer sales in grocery store chains.” Wojcik said that hops are expensive and inflation has impacted that.

Phoenix Beer Company is open and welcoming to anyone looking to try a local brew. To learn more or find their beer in stores or online for sale, click here!
