I’ve never been too fond of any article or study that has the word “Millennials” in it. Nine times out of ten, it’s just some pissed off liberal in their 40s bitching that we’re having fun while they’re slowly dying. Now, there’s a study out there that says we “Millennials” have different drinking habits than young people in the past.
In a recent study, results showed some interesting findings regarding what we drink.
According to Gallup’s 2013 Consumption Habits poll, just 41 percent of adults under the age of 30 prefer to drink beer over other forms of alcohol – a decrease of 30 percent over the past 20 years.
There could be a reason behind this, like we’re becoming more sophisticated or something, but we all know the truth. We’re just trying to get fucked up more easily. Of course, when broken down by sex, the poll shows that men still prefer drinking beer, which is good, seeing as how we’re men. That’s just what we do.
The author I’m citing, Morgan Chalfant from Red Alert Politics, had an interesting take on it all.
Perhaps young adults have adopted finer palates, choosing elegant wine over the beer so common at college frat parties. Perhaps kegs are going out of style. Or perhaps young people have simply been mesmerized by the concepts of cheap, boxed wine and Trader Joe’s “Two-Buck Chuck.” You be the judge.
First off, Morgan, don’t tell me what to do. If I want to be the judge, I don’t need your damn permission. Secondly, I don’t know what’s actually causing this trend. I’m not a scientist. However, I can tell you that you lost all credibility with one sentence: “Perhaps kegs are going out of style.” Are you out of your mind?
