You know how people say that dog owners bear a striking resemblance to their pooch? Well, a similar concept applies to beer drinkers. Research shows that the type of suds you sip says a lot about your personality.
In 2009, a market researcher named Mindset Media interviewed more than 2,600 people and found specific personalities that matched with more than half a dozen branded beer choices, says AdAge. For example, Domestic Bud drinkers tend to be rule-breakers, while Bud Light sippers are perfectionists.
So, in lieu of Woodland Park Zoo’s Brew at the Zoo on October 4, we’ve put together this super scientific test to tell you which zoo animal you are based on the beer you drink. And hey, if you buy tickets to Brew at the Zoo, you might even meet your spirit animal!
If you’re a stout drinker
You’re a brown bear! Despite their enormous size and tough exterior, brown bears are actually pretty sweet (but we don’t recommend trying to cuddle the next one you see). According to National Geographic, “adult brown bears are powerful, top-of-the-food chain predators, but much of their diet consists of nuts, berries, fruit, leaves and roots.” And like a big ol’ grizzly bear, stout drinkers are probably creative and adventurous, but seek gentle experiences.
If you’re a Budweiser drinker
You’re a porcupine! These prickly little guys are known for doing what they want, when they want. Skyáana, the North American porcupine at Woodland Park Zoo, is gentle and confident, while determined to do what she wants to do when she wants to do it. And as AdAge says, “Bud drinkers are emotionally steady people who live in the here and now but hate authority.” We’ll cheer to that!
If you’re a craft beer drinker
You’re a Humboldt penguin! The entire penguin exhibit at Woodland Park Zoo is designed to conserve natural resources. It uses the earth’s natural systems to ensure a pristine water environment for these endangered birds while preventing storm water runoff from entering nearby natural water sources. This saves approximately 3,000,000 gallons of water and 22,000 kilowatt hours of energy each year. Similar to these penguins, craft beer drinkers care about the environment.
They’re 105 percent more likely than the average person to drive a hybrid car and 153 percent more likely to buy organic, the research says.
If you’re a Corona drinker
You’re an arctic fox! You might have assumed the beer of summer would have been paired with a more tropical animal. But this small fox, known as the “clown of the tundra,” has a cheeky personality that’s perfectly paired with Corona drinkers. Hudson is the arctic fox at Woodland Park Zoo, and he’s well-known for being fun, energetic, and playing games with his keepers! Corona drinkers are notorious for being the life of the party and having endless amounts of energy.
