Wine and Beer Are Equally As Popular: A Report
When participants were asked "What do you drink most often?" in 2002, more people said beer than any other year, at 46%. Wine drinkers logged in at 31% that year, while liquor drinkers slated at 18%. The year 2005 was the high for wine, at 39%. This past year year, 36% of responders reach for a beer, 35% pour a glass of wine, and 23% drink cocktails or some other variation of hard liquor.
Guys 35 to 54 drink the most beer, at 51% while men 18 to 34 report their drink of choice as beer at 39% or liquor, at 30%. More people reach for beer in the midwest than any other region, at 46%. In the east, wine and beer falls about even, with 37% of responders who reach for a beer and 40% who drink wine most often. The west and south like their liquor, at 29% and 28% respectively.
Poor people drink more beer of course. For those making below 30K, 51% drink beer most. Wine is the drink of choice for 43% of those who make over 75K. And it makes little difference how much you earn if spirits are your go-to. Whether you make over 75K or under 30K, 20% to 25% of responders drink liquor most often.
