According to the National Beer Wholesalers Association (NBWA), American beer sales peak the week of the Fourth of July. This surely comes as no surprise to those accustomed to pairing cookout hot dogs with ice-cold beer by the can or keg.

Are there certain days or nights of the year when most of us go out and drop cash in bars and restaurants?
Retailers use the term on-premise and off-premise to refer to away-from-home and at-home purchasing, respectively. In these charts, we compile data collected by NBWA and beverage consultancy Fintech analyzing on- and off-premise beer sales in 2016.
