Beer remains the beverage of choice.
According to an annual Gallup poll of preferences among Americans who drink alcohol, 41 percent of drinkers say they typically drink beer; 31 percent wine and 23 percent liquor.
The ten percent divide between beer and wine is one of the largest recorded since 2005, the year beer fell to its all-time low at 36 percent and wine knocked it out of the top spot.
Since that year, beer has rebounded to reclaim the top spot, while wine has tailed off.
While the upward swing is encouraging for the beer business, it's still lower than the nearly half of all drinkers who named beer as their preferred beverage from 1992-94.
