What Beer Sends The Most People To The ER At Hospitals?

Have you ever wondered what beer, brew, or mixed drink sends the most people to the hospital? Apparently now we have an answer:

Researchers from Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health surveyed ER patients who’d been drinking, and they found that Budweiser was the number one brand consumed. They found that Steel Reserve Malt Liquor came in 2nd place, Colt 45 malt liquor was third, Bud Ice (another malt liquor) was 4th , Bud Light came in at 5th, and a discount-priced vodka called Barton’s came in as the 6th top drink.

Though Budweiser has 9.1 percent of the national beer market, it represented 15 percent of the of the E.R. “market.” The disparity was even more pronounced for Steel Reserve. It has only .8 percent of the market nationally, but accounted for 14.7 percent of the E.R. market. In all, Steel Reserve, Colt 45, Bud Ice, and another malt liquor, King Cobra, account for only 2.4 percent of the U.S. beer market, but accounted for 46 percent of the beer consumed by E.R. patients.

If you can take any lesson from this, it isn’t to blame Budweiser, or other beers…. the lesson to be had is to drink responsibly.
