Earlier this week, Bryan Roth, a new friend of mine, posted a guest blog on my site, courtesy of his blog, This is Why I’m Drunk. It detailed 12 great craft beers for 12 great days. I agreed to post an amateur beer taster blog on his site, and he assigned me 10 beers to go drink. He did not, from what I eventually found out, mean for me to drink them all at once. Needless to say, I am pretty responsible when I drink, so my consumption did directly contribute to the head count at La Paloma Treatment center. However, I will say I had a fantastic time!
But in getting ready for writing that blog, I thought I’d take a look at this “craft beer hobby,” and see what’s on the interwebs. I came across this great infographic on beer stats and alcohol taxes that I thought I’d share with you. It created by H&R Block, but I just thought it had some great information on here.
- I’m shocked that the Kentucky Derby was that much higher than the Super Bowl and Mardi Gras in alcohol consumption.
- Twenty states don’t pay as much alcohol taxes combined as Texas!?!
- And how is Garth Brooks’ song FIFTH among country drinking songs? That’s like saying “Sweet Home Alabama” is fifth among people from Alabama. No way.
