The division between wine drinkers and those who prefer a cold brewski might soon come to a close, as the 'Pick Your Poison' infographic by GOOD and Column Five shows.

Using results from a 2011 poll of American alcohol drinkers, Pick Your Poison reveals that since 1997, more and more people seem to be choosing wine over beer as their booze of choice. Even more surprising is the statistic showing that 20% of drinkers aged 18-34 prefer wine over beer or liquor, putting an end to the notion that vino is only enjoyed by those who, like the best wines, are of a higher age. It's unclear as to what the reason behind the younger crowd's newfound love of wine is, but I have my sneaking suspicions that increasingly lower costs for wine bottles might have something to do with it.

Whether you're highly devoted to your Friday night bottle of White Zinfandel, or you prefer a pint of the finest ale, Pick Your Poison offers interesting and surprising facts to brew over.
