Alcoholic Beverage Ad $ Down

Only two alcoholic beverage advertisers are among the top 50 leading national advertisers in the U.S., and both fall very near the bottom of the list, which is goes from the highest to lowest spenders on ads.

Both alcohol advertisers spent substantially less money on advertising in 2003 than in 2002 and both dropped even farther down the list between those two years.
