What Your Beers Reveal About YOu
by Eva Karlman
Zoosk, a top online dating service, recently conducted a survey among more than
2,800 single beer drinkers to see what their beer choice says about them. The
results show that your choice of brew says more about you than just your taste in
beer… the type of beer you or your date prefers just might be the information you
need to see if you are compatible! Here are the Zoosk survey “brews clues”:
Looking for Marriage: Domestic beer drinkers are the most likely to be looking for
marriage (20%). Take it slow, though, as PDAs typically don’t go down well with
domestic beer drinkers. Overall, domestic brew lovers are a traditional bunch,
preferring dinner and movie as a first date.
Not ready to settle down: 31% of men who prefer microbrews say they’re looking for
a fun date, but nothing long-term. In fact, microbrew drinkers are the most likely to
have had a one night stand (74%) and the majority of microbrew drinkers (54%) want
sex every day. They’re also the most likely to prefer outdoor adventures, like
kayaking or hiking, for a first date.
Need staying power in your relationship? Find an ULTRA-LIGHT beer drinker.
These calorie counters prefer romantic evenings, like to talk about their life goals,
and have been in the highest percentage of long-term relationships on average at
75%. Ultra-light beer drinkers are also the most likely to be self-proclaimed
Looking for a more reserved type? Choose an IMPORT drinker for your next round.
Those sipping on an import are least likely to have had a one night stand (and the
most likely to still be a virgin, on average, at 4%). These introverts prefer man’s best
friend to felines.
Looking for a family-friendly date? Belly up to a LIGHT BEER drinker.
• 92% of light beer sippers are open to dating someone with kids, and 64% can be
found spending time with family and friends on the weekend. Light beer drinkers are
second only to ultra-brew drinkers when it comes to being in lasting relationships.
But that's only one survey. Many others have tried to answer that same question.
Here are a few of their very different conclusions-
If you like IPAs you welcome change and deal well with unexpected obstacles.
Stout drinkers are slow to anger and always seem to have their emotions under
Pilsner drinkers are efficient, direct, and hard workers.
Dark ale drinkers are aggressive but sympathy to others' problems.
Bock beer lovers tend to be complex and adventuresome. They are known to drink
Light lager fans tend to worry more than most. They seek out various opinions when
dealing with major issues especially those at work.
People who prefer domestic beers over craft beers or imports are generally middle of
the road in their politics. They're not nearly as conservative as people who don't
drink beer at all, but not as liberal as people who prefer more exotic beer.
People who drink a broad portfolio of beers are different than one-brand drinkers as
well. Those "indifferent" beer drinkers are more open-minded and emotional people
who enjoy a variety of life experiences.
As for specific beers another survey showed that:
Bud drinkers are sensible, grounded and practical. They are the polar opposite of
daydreamers and don't easily get carried away. These beer drinkers also don't like
authority. Budweiser drinkers are 42% more likely to drive a truck than the average
person, 68% more likely to choose a credit card with flexible payment terms and 42%
more likely to use breath-freshening strips every day.
Corona fans are busy and energetic people who are also extremely extroverted.
They're people persons who seek out the company of others whether in a group or
just one-to-one. Corona drinkers do more and see more people in one day than most
people see in a week.
People who drink Blue Moon tend to have an attitude in most things along with a
healthy ego. They are good at finding problems but struggle with solutions. They
tend to be hopelessly romantic.
Pabst Blue Ribbon drinkers enjoy being up to date on pop culture but have little
interest in history or politics. They generally like to try new things and have an
As for serious craft beer drinkers (sorry, this survey lumped us all together), we are
more likely to spend time thinking about beer rather than fretting over work. We are
more open-minded than most people; we seek out interesting and varied experiences
and are intellectually curious. Craft-beer drinkers generally who don't stress about
missed deadlines and tend to enjoy life.
Craft beer fans are caring, sensitive individuals who are simply wonderful people.
Ok, I added that last line but it sure sounds like us, right?
