Beer remains the beverage of choice.

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.
