"Today, Beer Institute President Joe McClain issued the following statement on the release of the Department of Health and Human Services' (HHS) 2010 National Survey on Drug Use and Health, which showed the rates of underage drinking declined to record-low levels:
'Findings from the most recent National Survey on Drug Use and Health demonstrate the collective efforts of many – including parents, educators, retailers, community leaders, law enforcement, elected officials and members of the beer industry – are having a positive impact in reducing underage drinking. Just last week, we, along with our member companies, proudly announced our continued support of the federal government's 'We Don't Serve Teens' program to help parents and other adults effectively talk about the subject of underage drinking with teens.

This positive news should only embolden our efforts to continue helping teens make responsible choices.'" Read More
