Why do you think it is that so many men like beer and so many women like wine?

nature or nurture? discuss

Men and beer...Women and wine

Sounds like a country music song title.

A great debate about the drinks??

Many women like beer, but some think - its not ladylike.
Many men like wine, but some think - its not manly.

I will drink champagne, though. I LOVE beer.

I am a woman...I hate wine. I am not exceptionally crazy about beer either but will drink it on occasion. If given the choice between the two beer would always win with me.

Maybe because most American's idea of beer is fizzy yellow pee pee brewed mostly using adjuncts and sells because of marketing and not flavor. It is marketed to men and not to women.

Have you ever thought about this: Why is a "light" beer marketed so heavily as being manly?

Beer has always been considered the working man's drink, the common man's drink whereas wine throughout history has been a more "upper class" drink. Well, at least until boxed wine and $2 Chuck. Many people are just now discovering craft beer and all that it has to offer and I actually see more women now exploring beer than ever before. Google Ladies of Craft Beer.

Conversely, at my office, more wine shipments come in for execs and upper management who are males. They do these high end wine of the month clubs and order direct from wineries they tour (something brewers cannot do for their consumers, by the way).

I think the premise of this thread should be: Rich people and wine, regular people and beer. Though it isn't always true.

For me (male) I'm a beer geek. I've had a lot of meals paired with wine and tried many different wines but for me, nothing goes better with food than the right beer. Note: craft beer.
