A new poll asks, "How much WA beer do you drink?"

Yesterday we posted an article about the “drink local” concept. It was a popular post and generated some good, thoughtful comments. Now we have introduced an even easier, faster way for you to comment on the Drink Local issue.

You should have seen this coming. Today, we started a new poll. It is over there in the right sidebar. We’re curious… “Of all the beer you drink, what percentage is brewed in Washington?” We know you probably don’t keep track, so just take a guess. Estimate.

We suspect that the people who drink a lot of Washington beer will be more likely to vote, but what do we know?

  1. I answered 75-90% but only because 75% of the beer I drink is my homebrew, and it was brewed in Washington state so technically it’s a WA beer. 🙂 But if we go with WA beer meaning commercially brewed WA beer, then I’d say about 15%, which is still pretty good because it means 60% of the non-homebrew beer I consume is WA beer.

  2. I said 75-90%

    I’m a local to Diamond Knot in Mukilteo. When I go to some of the craft bars in the area, I tend to get something local. Balefire in Everett always has local stuff on tap. I always change up my local pick when at other bars.

    The other percent is usually import stuff like Belgians and German style beers. I love Oktoberfest time and just drinking a lot sorts of different beers from Europe.

    About 1% of my beer drinking is Coors Light or Bud Light when it comes to the yearly camping trip I go on with my buddies. I only drink that because I don’t feel bad shooting one or throwing one in the fire to watch blow up. Plus they’re easier to shot gun, haha.

  3. How can I drink anything other than WA beer, when the Beveridge Place sells them to me for only $3 on Mondays? It’s too good to pass up.

  4. well being a Seattlite living in Oregon, practicing the art of brewing, I drink mostly Oregon beer… its free for one and like the first poster a large amount of the beer I consume is homebrew. I will say though that if I subtract my profession and hobby I drink about 33% import beers, mostly Belgian, and 66% craft beer, mostly west coast (Oregon, Washington, California, Colorado, etc…)
