|You Are What You Drink
A new study of 1,000 beer drinkers found that the type of
beer you prefer may actually reveal a lot more than you think
about your personality.The survey, conducted on behalf of
Founders Brewing pitted the two factions of beer against
each other and found that lager drinkers tend to be more goal-
oriented and sociable. They are more likely to describe their
ideal Saturday night as going out with friends, while ale
drinkers lean more towards curling up on the couch and
hanging out with Netflix.
Interestingly, lager drinkers report higher stress levels than ale
drinkers, which may be because they report being more likely
to work hard and show up on time for work. But despite that,
ale drinkers are the more likely bunch to say they’re happy
with their job and leading a fulfilling life, overall. Lager lovers
also tend to spend more time worrying about their future than
their easygoing ale-admiring counterparts, but they are more
confident and more likely to love meeting new people.
But no matter what they prefer, beer drinkers tend to be a bit
set in their ways, as the average beer drinker hasn’t switched
up their favorite beer in four years. Not only that, over one in
three beer drinkers say they’re intimidated by craft beers.
