This Chart Shows The Most Popular Types Of Alcohol Around The World

There is some great beer in Central IN. We found some of the best back in March when we did our battle of the beers. Not everyone is a beer drinker. Some like wine and some go harder. Ever wonder what people prefer?

Americans love beer, as do our neighbors to the north and south. Unsurprisingly, wine is more popular in Europe than in any other region. Hardly anyone in the South-East Asia region drinks wine — 77.3% of the alcohol consumed there in 2010 was spirits. The Western Pacific region also favors spirits.

Globally, spirits are more popular than any other type of alcohol, and beer comes in second.
