This photo was taken at a Wal-Mart in Pompano, FL. Only one “local” beer is available for purchase. However, that “local” brand is now owned by a multinational drink and brewing holdings company, which is not based in the United States. At Wal-Mart, the manufacturer is told how much they are going to sell their beer for, and whatever stock is not purchased before it has to be turned over is required to be bought back by the manufacturer. Under this model, no local brewery could keep up- forcing many to scale back their operations and some to shut their doors for good.
