The Beer Store has been the most popular beer-selling retail destination in America for decades.
Now, it’s a firework display in a city that is losing ground to a competitor.
The Beer Store and other craft beer retailers in cities across the United States are in a race to win customers back, as competition from a rival craft beer retailer continues to grow.
For a city like Philadelphia, the battle is all about competition.
In the first six months of 2017, the number of beer stores in Philadelphia hit an all-time high, and a number of other major retailers have reported similar numbers, including Costco and Walmart.
The Beer and Wine Stores have been the biggest success stories in the city’s history, but now, the city is in the midst of a new era in its history as the craft beer market is on the rise.
Last year, the Beer Store, which has more than 100 stores nationwide, surpassed the number that it had in 2006.
And in 2017, that number has risen again.
As of Friday, there were 1,053 Beer Store locations in the Philadelphia region, and the Beer Stores had an overall revenue of $7.9 billion, according to the Beer and Liquor Store Association.
That was up from the $7 billion the Beer stores had in 2016, according the Beer Industry Group, a trade group that represents beer retailers.
There were also some notable differences between the Beer & Wine Stores and the craft retailers, according.
“They don’t have to be as large,” said Matt Janssen, president of the Association of Beer Stores.
“They have to offer something more than just the usual shelf space, and that’s what we’re seeing here in Philadelphia.
Janssen said the growth in craft beer is a boon to the city, because it means people are more inclined to spend more on a beer or wine.
Beer stores in other cities are doing well, too.
In New York City, there are nearly 1,400 Beer &wine stores.
In Boston, there is about 1,500.
While the number is growing, the impact is far less dramatic.
That’s because the Beer Company Council, a nonprofit that represents craft brewers and wholesalers, says the Beer Markets Association, a national trade group, reports that sales at craft stores are down.
In New York, craft beer sales have dropped nearly 10 percent from 2016 to 2017.
That decline could have an impact on the Beer Market Association’s numbers for Philadelphia, because those sales represent a smaller share of total beer sales.
The craft beer sector in Philadelphia is also struggling.
The Beer Market Council says the craft market has been hurt by a lack of demand.
The market’s annual craft beer survey is down almost 9 percent, and in 2018, the craft markets’ sales dropped 9 percent.
A number of retailers are seeing their sales decline in Philadelphia, including Trader Joe’s, BJ’s, Whole Foods Market and Starbucks.
At Trader Joes, sales have been falling by 12 percent year-over-year, and this year they are down more than 40 percent.
BJ’s has seen a 7 percent drop.
Whole Foods Market is seeing sales drop by 20 percent year over year.
Starbucks, meanwhile, is down 50 percent, while BJ’s sales are down nearly 10.5 percent.
