Poll: What is the ideal ABV for your favorite beer style/brand?
Similar to what has been done for all our prior blog polls, this post takes a moment to memorialize the results we received on the most recent blog poll. The reader’s response to the question “What would you consider to be the ideal ABV (Alcohol by Volume) for your favorite beer style/brand?” are presented below.
Total Votes: 32
In every industry, there are trends that develop new product offerings and craft beer has certainly seen its share. Whether it’s the Imperial / “Extreme” beer craze or the Return of the Session Beer movement, the ABV of the resulting beers tends oscillate over time. So when this poll was set up, Tom and I were curious how our readership would rate on the ABV spectrum. When we were originally putting this poll together, the original intent was to determine how many people preferred a session beer as their favorite beer. As can be seen from above, the result was neither high nor low, but right in the middle (although I’m sure some purist will yell at me for calling an 8% ABV beer ‘right in the middle’).
We’d love to know what you think of the results and how the information may (or may not) be used. Also, please make sure to take part in our current poll, which should be posted and awaiting your input.
