I came across an article in Salon which had the following headline. The basic jist of the article is that the journal Psychological Science have a report which traced the spending preferences of conservatives and liberals. Basically the report found that conservatives are more attached to established brands.

Conservatives and liberals drink different beer - Salon.com

In light of this article I thought it might be interesting if posters stated their political ideology, class and their beer preferences (or if they are tee total). I would be very interested to know if their is a coloration between certain brands and ideology among our Nordie posters.

With regards to myself I am politically liberal and I am from a working class backgroundand I usually drink Guinness but I'd go for an Indy beer if available.

Liberal - Ciders (Mainly Magners/Bulmers but also Swedish Berry ciders are quite nice) and local whiskeys.

Classical Liberal - Various Lager Beers, Cider, Italian / French Wine, Vodka, Gin. Not brand loyal, focus on quality with thriftiness and occasion.

Neoconservative. The preemptive blood of my possible future enemies.
Liberal, any good Weissbier or wine money permitting, not brand loyal.

fairly conservative: carlesberg if on the lock, staropramen or erdinger if out for a few sociables, wine (sauvingnon blanc marlborough) at dinner, hennessey on other occasions.
