EL PASO, Texas (KTSM)– Today is National Beer Day, so if you ever needed a reason to drink a bunch beer on a Wednesday, today is the day.

Some local bars in El Paso are celebrating the day with beer specials. One bar in particular is Tin Man, with $3 pints and $7 growler fills.

A new survey for the ‘holiday’ asked beer drinkers just how much they drink a week.  Even though the most common answer is ‘just a few’ some people are REALLY going for it.

65% of beer drinkers have between one and four beers a week.

But 4% drink between 16 and 20 beers a week which calculates to two or three per day.

5% drink 21 or more beers a week upping intake between three and infinity per day.

The survey also found beer is the most popular drink people order at bars . . . and people believe beer drinkers are more approachable than people who drink any other type of booze.
