During the period March 2020 through April 2021, the control states’ on- and off-premise markets behaved capriciously as opposed to their historically consistent behavior. The pre-COVID on-premise share of the control state market averaged 18%. During May of this year the on-premise share of the control state market, 16.1%, was less than 2% below its historical average, suggesting the on-premise marketplace recovery in the control states is continuing, as would be expected, as COVID restrictions are lifted.
