2016 was an amazing year of growth for the BevSpot community. By the end of the year, our ordering and inventory platform was adopted by hundreds of bars and restaurants in 46 states and territories domestically, as well as in a few international markets.

In the process of this rapid expansion, we’ve amassed a significant amount of bar and restaurant industry data. This data has allowed us to examine demand for a variety of alcoholic beverage products and brands within the sole realm of the hospitality industry—excluding off-premises activity (e.g. grocery and liquor store sales) that is separate from bar and restaurant demand.

We’ve aggregated the year’s distributor order data to see what alcoholic beverages are selling the most on BevSpot.

We’ve also broken down the orders for beer, whiskey, vodka, tequila & mezcal, rum, and gin to see which brands have the highest market shares for these product categories.
