Sources for Demographic, Product, Market, Information for a beverage unit.

I am looking for as many websites as I can find that will be useful in gathering market information. I have been given a large assignment. I will be expected to create Marketing Information System Tables, and perform a multitude of other tasks. I am trying to find websites that will give me the type of information that I'm looking for, freely. I am not looking for websites that offer a decision making program, for purchase. In essence, I am to be running a mock-marketing firm. Since my client is a beverage unit, I need to find all possible marketing information applicable to my fictitious client. I need cites that will offer me statistics, data tables, (preferably graphs, and charts), trend info., demographic info., etc. I need to educate myself as much as possible on this subject so as to be better able to advise my clients in the ways they should proceed.

Any/All help you can offer in the process of this self-education process would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time, consideration, and courtesy.
