In news that will surprise almost no-one, a recent poll shows that Austrians really like beer.
Austrians are avid beer drinkers: more than half, namely 58.4 percent, regularly drink beer.
Only one in six of these prefer non-alcoholic beer.
These are the findings of online market and opinion research institute Marketagent.com, who interviewed 1,700 people aged 16 to 69 years about their beer consumption.
The research shows that Austria has earned itself the nickname "Beer Country".
Six out of ten beer drinkers at least once a week crack open a bottle or can.
Most beer drinkers like to do so at a barbecue, followed by going out for a beer.
Two thirds of beer drinkers prefer to stick to one brand of their choice. The Styrian beer brand "Gösser" is perceived as the most traditional beer, while "Stiegl" is seen as having the best quality.
