What a Man’s Choice in Beer Reveals About His Personality

People have always said a man’s drink says a lot about his personality — but often, they’re referring to hard liquor. What about beer, the real man’s drink? What can you tell about a man based on his brew? We did some investigating on the subject, and with a little help from this study done by Mindset Media, here's what we came up with:

Budweiser: The All-AmericanIf you visit Budweiser’s website, you’ll learn that Adolphus Busch, the founder of Budweiser, believed there were three ways to do things: the wrong way, the right way and the better way. He used practical innovation to create a great American lager and forged his business through the tough years of prohibition, building a company that is now an iconic representation of the American dream. From what we’ve discovered, Busch infused some of this inspiring personality into his brew; men who choose Budweiser tend to be sensible, grounded and practical. They enjoy living in the moment and aren’t ones to plan in advance. They dislike the concept of authority and aren’t afraid to “live outside the box,” bearing a similar resemblance to the pioneer himself, Adolphus Busch.

Blue Moon: The Tree HuggerPeople who drink Blue Moon tend to have an attitude that their beer of choice is better than yours, but you’re not worthy (or capable) of understanding why. They despise moral authorities and take pleasure in sarcastically criticizing the world around them, offering no useful solutions. Your best chances of spotting them are while they’re driving their hybrid car, shopping for organic food, surfing the Web on their MacBook Pro, or hugging a tree.

Heineken: The PoserMen who drink Heineken are an absolute catch. Their taste for luxury clothes, fancy cars and fine dining is something the rest of us can only dream about. They’re always up-to-date with the latest technologies and will enthusiastically educate you on them. If you believe them when they tell you how smart, good looking and successful they are (yes, them — not you) and give them 110 percent of your undivided attention, you're bound for a relationship full of eternal bravado and bliss.

Bud Light: The Frat BoyWhen you think of Bud Light, does a frat boy playing drinking games in his Vineyard Vines polo come to mind? If your answer is yes, you’re probably familiar with the personality I’m about to describe. Bud Light drinkers tend to be outgoing and easy to get along with, making for a great personality in a social setting. But be forewarned: They're also prone to taking unnecessary risks, so if you spend too much time with them, you may find yourself crossing the lines of socially acceptable behavior. Now, let’s play a game: Which came first, the Bud Light or the frat guy? That may be harder to figure out than the chicken and the egg conundrum!

Corona: The Party AnimalAlways expect something extra when hanging out with Corona drinkers. These people are energetic, fun, and the life of the party. They’ll make strangers feel like friends, and while their extroverted personality may be a little much for a Tuesday night happy hour, give them a chance. Deep down inside, they likely have an altruistic side that’s yearning to come out.

Michelob Ultra: The Guy Drinking Low-Cal BeerBesides his ultra-strict diet (Michelob Ultra has a measly 95 calories), there’s nothing really ultra about this guy. He might be young and beautiful, but he's a bit conceited. He has a strong, confident opinion, but can also be confrontational and controlling. Perhaps he's into you, but he's probably more into himself. And he might be drinking an Ultra, but to us, he's just another man drinking a low-cal beer.
