Taxpaid Shipments -2.5% in Jul, Sez Beer Inst; US Biz Runnin’ Down 1% Yr-to-Date 

Better Jul scans for beer not reflected in shipments by domestic brewers.  Indeed, taxpaid shipments down for 6th straight mo in Jul, -382K bbls, -2.5%, estimates Beer Inst economist Michael Uhrich.  That was despite extra selling day, Michael points out. Jul was a tuff comp: up 5% last yr.  In any case, taxpaid shipments down 1.67 mil bbls, 1.7% for 7 mos.  Jan-Jun import gain offsets almost a half-mil bbls of that loss. But looks like total US shipments running down about 1% yr-to-date, even while scans suggest off-premise volume even to up slightly thru Jul.
