Later this year, Beverage Dynamics will celebrate its 80th anniversary. What began as Liquor Store & Dispensery magazine, then became Liquor Store magazine, has been called Beverage Dynamics since 1989. We have tons of special content and coverage planned for the anniversary, but I’d like to get some input from readers as well. Looking back at the beverage alcohol industry since 1935, what trends, news stories, people or brands do you think made the most impact? What stands out from the decades you were alive during? If you’ve been a liquor retailer for a long time, how has the industry changed during your career (for better or worse)? What anecdotes or personal experiences can you share about what retailing has meant to you?
Feel free to write in the comments section below, or send your stories and thoughts to me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. You never know, we might choose your story to share with every Beverage Dynamics reader!
