Keeping up with market trends is important for businesses such as breweries and restaurants, but can also be helpful for commercial property and senior living facility owners.

For breweries, current trends include making your brewery more sustainable with clean energy technology and being smart about by-products. Sierra Nevada and New Belgium are two well-known breweries who are big on sustainability. Trends in Midwestern brewing include a range of both pale ales and Imperial stouts – two  delicious beers for almost any occasion. One more current brewing trend is the debate between cask and nitro – which was produces a more delicious beer? Both offer ways to expand your breweries offerings.

One popular market trends for restaurants these days is the food truck. There are many pros and cons associated with this trend so do your research before hopping on the food truck bandwagon! With technology making food delivery services easier than ever before, restaurants may benefit from putting effort into their to-go options. Green roofs, rooftop gardens and wine on tap are all trending now.

In the commercial property world, renters are looking for well-outfitted and convenient studio apartments. Consider downsizing appliances and adding shelving for more renter appeal. And Naturally Occurring Retirement Communities let seniors live the life they want into old age!

One method, nitro beer, uses nitrogen in the carbonation of their beers rather than the traditional carbon dioxide. The other, cask beers, brings back the brewing tradition of cracking a cask of beer and drinking it during the prime of its life. Is one better than the other?

A new trend is sweeping the nation, and we can guarantee that you’re going to want to hear about this!
