An entertaining story that I picked up on over at Snooth from James Duren. Seems that the drink of choice for those living out in Napa Valley is not wine, but beer. Hmmm. And quite a way for those mysterious powers that be to figure this all out. James is reporting out of what The Napa Valley Register found by way of Police Reports.
“The world of statistics and science becomes a very interesting realm when wine – or any type of alcohol for that matter – is thrown into the mix. Recent research has shown that drinking a certain amount of booze makes people more attractive, while compounds in red wine have amazing healing powers. Yet too much wine has all sorts of negative effects. Consumer studies have shown that wine buyers are using social media outlets to make their decision about wine purchases, yet they still usually buy their wine in stores. And this week, in a rather interesting twist of data interpretation, a Napa Valley newspaper is claiming that Napa’s residents love beer more than they love wine. The source? DUI records from local police.”
