Beer is back. From Yahoo!:
This year, 41 percent of U.S. drinking adults said they typically choose beer; 31 percent choose wine, and 23 percent choose liquor. The results came from Gallup's Consumption Habits survey, and the data is based on telephone interviews with 1,013 randomly selected U.S. adults ages 18 or older.
This is the strongest showing for beer in the United States since the drink's popularity tumbled in 2005, though it still has a long way to go to climb back up to its heyday in the '90s when almost half of Americans said they preferred it, Gallup noted.
