Drinking numbersAug 18 2011

Every year, Gallup surveys the drinking habits of Americans. If this is familiar, it's because I posted about the 2010 version of the study last year (and I'll probably post about it next August, too, if I'm here). The biggest notes this year are beer falling 5% to the drink of choice of only 36% of Americans. This puts it in a statistical tie with wine (35%) as America's favorite beverage. (Us rye drinkers are down at 23%.)

But also, more educated people spend more on alcohol, and praying reduces alcohol consumption. The more you know.
