WHERE YOU LIVE IMPACTS WHAT YOU DRINK
In a 2010 Adult Beverage Consumer Trend Report by Technomic,
research shows that where you live may impact your preferences
when it comes to purchasing adult beverages away from home.
In addition, Technomic reports that casual-dining restaurants
continue to be the concept most frequently visited by away-from-home purchasers of adult beverages, and that beer is the most
popular adult beverage consumed on-premise compared with
wine and spirits. Also, despite rising trends with craft/premium
and import beers, consumers still report that nearly half the beer
they consume away from home is domestic light beer.
