Beer And Wine
The difference between wine and beer is often similar to the differences between the classes. Even though there are people that are considered “high class” that drink beer and people that are labeled “low class” that drink wine, it’s pretty cut and dry along class lines. When you go to a party thrown by a group of people from the middle class, odds are you’re going to find top of the line beer and bottom of the barrel wine. On the flipside, higher class people drink expensive bottles of wine unless they’re trying to fit in. Case in point, Barack Obama, the President of the United States, held a “beer summit” at the White House where he had a beer that wouldn’t usually be attached to a man of his stature.
It might seem unfair, but beer is stereotyped as being a drink that’s to be enjoyed by the lower classes. As always, there are exceptions to this rule as we previously stated, but those are few and far between. That doesn’t mean you have to consider your class when you’re picking out something to drink at the bar. Pick whatever you want and don’t worry about what other people think. Both beverages are tasty and should be enjoyed by all, no matter how much money you make.
If you’re a member of the upper class, you can enjoy a beer now and then. It’s not going to kill you. Well, maybe it would if you consumed beer after beer for several years, but you should know that everything that’s good should be enjoyed in moderation.
