With Spring amongst us and Summer just around the corner, we thought it would be a good time to kick back and share with you some of our favorite beers here at Survey Analytics. Like most awesome start-ups, beer is a staple. In fact, we have some pretty rich data on beer consumption in the United States. Back in February, we conducted a study on The American Beer Buyer for Super Bowl XLVIII that you can check out here. We found that 84% of consumers prefer their beer in bottles over cans, 33% prefer ale, and 24% prefer lager. We also learned that home brewing is growing in popularity, as 68% of respondents stated that they are interested in brewing lessons. In addition to the Super Bowl, we also conducted a survey about American drinking habits on St. Patrick's Day that you can read here. 54% of people stated that they prefer to drink beer on St. Patrick's Day, and 49% planned to drink green beer on the holiday. With all of this data on beer consumption, it's only natural that we share with you some of our own favorites. Cheers!
