Poll: Consumption of 'Holiday'-styled Beers

Similar to what has been done for all our prior blog polls, this post takes a moment to memorialize the results we received on our most recent blog poll.  The readers responses to the questions "During the holiday season, what percentage of your consumption is made up of 'Holiday'-styled beer?" are presented below.

Total Votes: 29

So only a few of us seem to get caught up in the holiday spirit for those slightly larger, spiced beers that always come into circulation at the end of the year.  My hat is off to the 7% who substitute holiday beer into the majority of their consumption - that's saying something.  On the other side of the coin, it looks like 30-50% of the voters only pick up the occasional Noel beer, if at all - my guess is these individuals don't like deviating off their normal preferences.

Let us know your thoughts, either as a comment or an email.  And if you are reading this, we've put up our next poll, which awaits your response.

  1. I'm not a big fan of the "winter" beers. I like a good Oktoberfest or Punkin' Ale. I try to drink seasonally, to broaden my beer horizons somewhat, but I always come back to hoppy pales.

  2. Dustin,

    I'm in the same boat. While I like the idea of holiday beers and can get caught up in the 'Tis The Season' feel that occurs this time of year, in the end, I still don't consume that many. For three out of four 'seasonal' timeframes, my consumptions gets swayed, but the winter beers just never seem to end up in my cup.

    Thanks for your thoughts.
