According to a new survey by Bank of America/Merrill Lynch, millennials are drinking less beer because:

A. Beer makes you fat

B. Beer makes you burp

C. Beer isn’t as sexy as other beverages

D. Beer’s flavors are too predictable


Ok, we know it’s supposed to be a wine quiz, but who doesn’t like an occasional beer (question)? In any case, for the survey, Bank of America/Merrill Lynch surveyed 1,000 millennials in the U.S. and the U.K. Of those surveyed, 27% said they were ditching beer. And the number one reason? Because “it makes you fat.” Millennials appear to be cutting back on alcoholic beverages of all kinds, with beer being hit harder than either spirits or wine.
