A Sobering Thought

While we love beer, we always encourage drinking responsibly. These jarring stats are definitely another layer in the drink responsibly campaign and are great to keep in mind as you delve into the exciting beer world.

A Sobering Thought

 

Alcohol is responsible for 88,000 deaths in the United States each year.

 

It’s a factor in about 60% of fatal burns, drownings, and homicides, 50% of severe trauma injuries and sexual assaults, and 40% of fatal motor vehicle crashes, suicides, and fatal falls.

-Lindsay Moyer, Nutrition Action

Always drink responsibly!
