The beer industry has seen lots of changes in my lifetime, as a kid I thought beer was the canned Coors my dad drank at the end of the workday. As an adult I learned beer is also sold in other forms like bottles and draft. The beer options today are much more varied than they were when I turned 21 (1988). Craft beers have taken so much volume from big beer that big breweries have consolidated and began buying craft brewers. See 9 Craft Beers You Didn’t Know Weren’t Craft Beers.

In the news last week was discussion of Budweiser and the use of the famous Clydesdale horses in advertising:

The self-proclaimed King of Beers is more of an afterthought among young consumers at Jake’s and bars across the U.S.: Some 44% of 21- to 27-year-old drinkers today have never tried Budweiser, according to the brand’s parent company, Anheuser-Busch InBev NV.

Young drinkers aren’t the reason Budweiser volumes have declined in the U.S. for 25 years, from its nearly 50-million-barrel peak in 1988 to 16 million barrels last year. Light beers like its sister, Bud Light, have chipped away at Bud’s share of the market for decades. Bud Light overtook it as the No. 1 selling beer in 2001, and Coors Light displaced it as No. 2 in 2011. (Wall Street Journal – Bud Crowded Out by Craft Beer Craze)

This got me to thinking about a poll on beer, but different than previous polls in 2009 & 2013. I used a poll I found online as the model for today’s poll question: How do you prefer to drink beer?

Various answers like plastic cup, can, bottle are listed. The poll is open until 8pm (Central) today, results will be posted Wednesday. The poll is at the top of the right sidebar.

    To me, it’s the beer that matters, not the container/source, but if I have choice, I prefer cans over bottles, since they’re both more recyclable and actually more recycled.
