Here’s the breakdown: 41 percent of drinkers prefer beer, 31 percent wine, and 23 percent liquor. Of course, there’s variance within certain populations—both women and older Americans tend to prefer wine over beer—but the whopping 57 percent of men who prefer a chilled pint of suds was evidently enough to land the drink top honors.
Still, beer, wine, and liquor all have their own merits. Let’s break them down, shall we?
Team Beer: It goes down easy. It’s fun in social situations, like World Cup parties. On average, commercially-produced beers have a relatively low alcohol content of 4.5 percent, so you can drink one and not feel buzzed.
Team Liquor: Sipping whiskey on the rocks feels hardcore. Other people think you’re hardcore. The bartender nods approvingly, because you’re so hardcore (and it’s his favorite drink, too). And if you’re a gal, it’s possible you’re advancing your career by drinking it.
