Is it the boomer-wake? (Although you'd think that would boost fishing and golf).
Studies show that Americans now work more than they did at the dawn of the 20th century. And people go to church more than they did when the country was founded. Maybe between work, church and the internet, nobody has time for fun?
I've heard all that, too.
But, a lot of the beer drinkers have more wine and hard liquor choices than ever before. Strip joint sales are up and porn sales are wayyyyy up. Meth sales are wayyyyyyy up, too. You can't drink much beer when you're doing Meth.
And a lot more people just choose not to drink at all.
