What does your drink say about you?

BudPicture this: Three women walk into a bar. The first orders wine, the second orders a cosmo, and the third orders beer. Which woman, do you think, ends up in a conversation with the tall and mysterious stranger?

According to the Budweiser ‘Beerpressions’ National Survey—a first-of-its-kind study about how beverage choices influence first impressions—your drink may be worth a thousand words.

Based on a representative survey of 2,000 Americans (ages 21+) conducted by Learndipity Data Insights, Budweiser asked respondents to match common bar drinks with the perceived personality traits of the people ordering them.

So what does your chosen drink say about you?

BUDWEISER ‘BEERPRESSIONS’ NATIONAL SURVEY

Drink Choice #1: Domestic Beer (Budweiser)
-70% say a woman with domestic beer (Budweiser) is “friendly” and “low-maintenance.”
-59% believe a man with this drink choice seems to be “authentic” and “genuine.”

Drink Choice #2: Imported Beer
-Conversely, only 36% believe a woman drinking imported beer is “low-maintenance.”
-27% say a man drinking imported beer is “trying to be cool” and is “a bit insecure.”

Drink Choice #3: Wine
-31% believe a woman drinking wine seems “predictable” and “cautious.”
-52% believe a man drinking wine seems more “serious” and “reserved.”

Drink Choice #4: Margarita
-50% believe a woman drinking a margarita is “energetic,” and “a bit shallow.”
-41% believe a man drinking a margarita is “fun-loving” and a “bit of a lightweight.”

OTHER NOTABLE FINDINGS

A. PEOPLE DRINKING DOMESTIC BEER (BUDWEISER) GET CHATTED UP MORE
22% of men and 20% of women report that “more people chat with me at a bar” when drinking a domestic beer like Budweiser (compared to wine or other cocktails)—but only 11% of men and 10% of women observe a similar effect for imported beer.

B. PEOPLE COMMUNICATE VIA THEIR DRINKS—ESPECIALLY AT WORK EVENTS
While 20% of Americans will actively consider how their drink order will be perceived by others while out with friends, nearly twice as many think strategically about their drink choices at a work event (39%) or on a date (34%).

Engine 15 expanding, building new brewery and tap room on Myrtle

engine15logoIf you had not already noticed, Jacksonville’s beer scene is absolutely on fire. In just little over five years our river city has gone from just a few beer-centric restaurants and brew pubs to sporting seven full-fledged craft breweries, scores of beer bars and a healthy amount of restaurants that focus on craft beer. And now comes even more proof that the beer scene is alive and kicking here, Luch Scremin co-owner and brewer at Engine 15, the Jacksonville Beach pub, has announced plans to open a production brewery, tap room and outdoor beer garden on Myrtle Ave. near downtown.

According to a Jacksonville Times-Union article Scremin expects to have the brewery operational in 90 days. It will feature a 20 barrel brewhouse that will allow him to brew his five core brands leaving the smaller four barrel brewhouse at the Jacksonville Beach brewery free to create small batch specialty beers.

Beer news and events segment new on ‘I Know Jax’

A few weeks ago, Joe Talentino the producer, director and host of ‘I Know Jax’ came to me with an idea: how about a beer news and events segment? The focus, as is the shows, would be on local events and happenings in the world of craft beer. Well, that was right up my alley, so we shot the pilot below last week.

If you have an event that includes a craft beer component. Drop send me a message here or an email at http://www.JaxBeerGuy.com so I can include it on my calendar  and maybe put it on the air on ‘I Know Jax.’

And be sure to tune in to ‘I Know Jax’ on CW17 Saturday nights at 8:00 p.m. and midnight.
