The $10.8 billion we spend on beer for one single day is enough to buy 2,160,000 iPads -- or 10 B2 stealth bombers!
Houston, TX (PRWEB) February 01, 2013
Americans will spend $10.8 billion on beer for the Super Bowl this year, according to a new infographic created by SaveOnBrew.com, the world’s only search engine for retail beer prices.
This data is based on information from Nielsen and only includes cases of beer purchased for consumption at home during the weeks preceding game day. The Beer Institute confirms that Americans drink 3 percent of the nation’s total beer consumption during the Super Bowl.
“It’s really mind-boggling when you think about it,” says SaveOnBrew cofounder Mark Davidson. “The $10.8 billion we spend on beer for one single day is enough to buy 2,160,000 iPads -- or 10 B2 stealth bombers!”
The third annual SaveOnBrew Super Bowl infographic also includes data like:
- Which percentage of people use the bathroom during the game so they won’t miss commercials
- How many trips people will take to the bathroom
- Top brands from San Francisco and Baltimore
- How many people will call in “sick” on Monday
This year’s infographic points out that consumers can taste beers from both Super Bowl cities. “With a new brewery opening each day in America, according to the Brewer’s Association, we thought it’d be an opportune time to spotlight beer brands like DuClaw Brewing Co and 21st Amendment – that hail from Baltimore and San Francisco, respectively.”
Davidson adds that the SaveOnBrew Beer Blog regularly spotlights exclusive interviews with craft brewers, beer news, beer reviews, gift guides for beer lovers, brewing science posts, lists of top beers for special occasions, and infographics. “We want to be a one-stop-shop for all types of beer information – not just beer prices,” he says.
