You southeners drink brandy???
Just bored and reading some articles and one states that Wisconsin (the state I live in) is rumored to be responsible for 90% of the worlds brandy consumption. The writer interviewed the director of public relations from Korbel and they told the writer that of the 385,000 cases of brandy that get exported a year, 139,000 go directly to wisconsin.
Anyways, after interviewing some locals, they reported while traveling to southern states it was hard to find alot of the brandy drinks they were accostomed to and most ended up bringing their own bottles with them on business trips, etc. Thats all people in wisconsin mostly drink; beer and brandy.
Is that true for all you southeners?
Now that I think of it, what kind of drinks are most popular where you guys come from?

By the way, Wisconsin is small as fck, I find it very doubtable that wisconsin consumes 90% of the worlds brandy i was just re-iterating the article I was reading. But the statistics from Korbel is still pretty crazy.

natty lite seems to be pretty popular around here these days but I personally go with busch light or old style. Blatz is actually not that bad either, i mean i dont go looking for it but if its in the fridge i drink it.

The Loco's in Macon sells long neck PBR's for $1 a piece, once a month I go there and eat some wings and enjoy my PBR's
Nope, never tried Brandy, and I don't know anyone who drinks it either??

in southern ohio and in kentucky people (the ones i know) drink brandy. But it's not brandy you'll find at the store. it's homemade brandy. there is nothing like a cold winter day with a bottle of blackberry brandy

Mostly beer and Bourbon down here, but I prefer vodka. I can't think of anyone who drinks brandy.

I can't even smell brandy.. makes me sick.
On another note, I hate when people rag on PBR. It's definitely the best of the cheap beers. I'll even take it over a bud or coors any day.

Pabst isnt bad, ill admit. They sell it around me for dollar a can along with blatz and schlitz. Blatz absolutely rules for how cheap it is. If I can help it, ill never drink Pabst though..... Remember a few years back when the company all of a sudden cut pension from all their employees? FCK that sht.

Im from KY and all I drink is beer and brandy. E&J VSOP is some great brandy for the price, love that stuff.

Oh yeah ... Most popular? Uhh probably some good old moonshine However at the same time it is not most widely consumed, when its available thats the drink of choice though. My grandfather still makes it to this day, **** will knock u on your ass.

Brandy?!! I'm not drinking anything that rymes with a woman........they don't make an alcohol called wussy do they? Might have to change my stance on the matter if they do. hahahaha
Who the hell pays $1 for a PBR? I could have sworn they gave that stuff away for free...you know.....like they do Hamm's.hahahahahaha

I'm in CT and blackberry brandy is pretty popluar around my parts. Especially in the winter. In fact, I have a pint in the backseat of my car right now, been there since last winter and I keep forgetting to move it. Gotta get the Polish brandy though (Leurox sp?), not the gay knockoff Mr. Boston.

You may feel free to discuss my Politics, Mother, or even my sexual orientation, however when you openly besmirch, my beverage of choice, I must stand up and state Enough is Enough.
How can you call yourself a Southerner and not treasure PBR?
As far as I am concerned, you know owe me for not traveling south to the Yankee Paradise that you call a home and personally give you a serious dressing down.
However as I am a reasonable man, I will gladly accept your written apology, and in addition the next time you escape to the North, or I am forced to travel into the Yankee Paradise, I will gladly meet you at an establishment of your choice to enjoy that golden nectar, that I love PBR.
And to you hung-solo, I have my eye on you…….
