Americans Are Boozing Less Than Originally Thought During The Pandemic | Zero Hedge
Believe it or not, people are actually drinking less now that they are quarantined.
What many thought would be an inevitability – people who are forced to stay home would start hitting the bottle more than usual – has actually turned out to be just the opposite. People are certainly buying more booze to stock themselves up at home, but this doesn’t offset the “gaping hole” from restaurants and bars, according to Bloomberg.
In fact, global alcohol consumption isn’t expected to hit pre-Covid levels until 2024.
Recall, we wrote in April 2019 that Gen Z would likely ditch alcohol and become the “ultimate” marijuana consuming generation.
