Beers, red vs blue

Postby kurt_w » Fri Sep 28, 2012 12:30 pm

An interesting chart showing which beers are preferred by Republicans vs Democrats:

The most Democratic beer is apparently Heineken. The most Republican are Coors Lite and Sam Adams.

To boost my bipartisan credibility this afternoon I will raise a glass of Sam Adams. (The other GOP alternative, a glass of Coors Lite, is too depressing to contemplate...)

Someone actually spent their time putting this chart together?

Heineken?!? Fuck that shit. Pabst...Blue...Ribbon.

Curious. Most of the Lite brews are further to the right than their non-Lite siblings. But there's two exceptions, Sam Adams and Michelob.

There is a lot of really dismal beer on that chart.

Not many people, if the size of the circles means anything.

Oh, and I was wrong there -- Sam Adams is the only case where the Lite version isn't more Republican-leaning than the regular.

Where do the craft beer drinkers (cue: Ned) fall? And no, Sam Adams ain't a craft brew anymore.
