Here’s How Many Beers People Drink a Week; The Numbers May Shock You
If you haven't noticed, it's National Beer Day. I have no idea why this holiday doesn't land on a Friday or Saturday every year, but if you need an excuse to call off work on a Thursday, National Beer Day on a Wednesday is as good a reason as ever to me.
Ever wondered how many beers the average person drinks a week?
WIVB reports that a new survey for National Beer Day asked beer drinkers, "how many beers they usually drink in a week?"
While some answers are typical, some people go ALL-OUT for beer drinking.
65 percent of people say one-to-four beers a week is what they're usually going for. That's normal, I guess; nothing too shocking.
However, just under five percent said 16-20 beers a week (whoa). Another five percent admitted they drink 21 or more beers a week...no, really!
21 beers a week is three beers per day. So people are really averaging three or more beers a day? Look, we love beer. There's not much better in life than an ice-cold beer after a long hard work week on a Friday evening. 21 beers a week though is big-time beer drinking!
I don't drink much on weekdays but Saturdays are usually my cheat day, so some sour beers and IPA's mean game time.
How many beers do you drink in a given week? We won't judge.
