In a recent Gallup Poll (in the States), when asked their beverage of choice, Americans were equally likely to claim beer (36%) or wine (37%) as their favorite.
This has been a huge shift of 20-points over the past two decades, showing a definite trend towards wine being more widely accepted.
The most surprising statistic I saw in this report was the amount that a preference for beer has decreased for young adults.
Falling in that category myself, and seeing my own preference (and that of my friends) lean more heavily toward wine, I am glad to see that we are “following the trends”.
Have your preferences changed over the past 20 years?
Do you follow the “trend”?
