Beer vs Wine is an age old debate. It really doesn't matter about maintaining a good body. If you're drinking alcohol, you accept the possibility of a belly. Studies show that wine is healthy, and even beer has healthy benefits. So the difference between beer and wine is really a personal preference. So what tips the scales in the the battle of beer vs wine?

Beer vs Wine

There are many key factors at play for why someone would choose one over the other. When it comes to beer vs wine, the drinker must consider many different factors.


Many people complain about the hangovers from crappy beer, but not all beer is crappy. Cheap wine can do a number on your noggin. Plus with the smooth taste of wine, it's easy to pound more of it. There's no avoiding the fact that the bubbles in beer slow you down.


Wine comes from grapes. Grapes are used to make juice. You drink juice as a kid. Ta-da! You sip wine to bring back fond memories of your sippy cup. Then again the cool crisp taste of hops and malt can remind you of the school playground, when you had your first sip of beer.


Beer offers a wide range of tastes. And wine can go toe-to-toe in the variety department. This really comes down to what type of nerd you want to be. Whether your nuts about Star Trek or Star Wars, you're still someone that sometimes forgets to wear deodorant.


Sipping a glass of Pinot just doesn't feel right at the Phillies game. Much like cracking open a Miller Lite pounder at a Steven Starr restaurant also just feels wrong. But not everyone likes both of those activities. Your drink choice probably reflects the types of things you like to do.


If you're addicted to drinking booze, it's really not going to matter the form. If someone hands you a glass of wine or a can of beer, you will drink it. Similar to the cigarette smoker, with a large enough craving you don't care if it's Menthol or PBR. Just give me my fix.
