    Just for fun. Do we think that beer drinkers on the West Side of Wa use more pry off caps than beer drinkers on the East side? This is just for fun, let's not have any Blue cap vs Red cap discussion, only twist vs pry.

    I chose West side uses more of every option. There's just a helluva lot more of us over here.

    What's the question again?
    Just curious: How are the percentages calculated?

    Doh! A flaw in my program, failure to calibrate for population. Thankfully I wasn't talking about anything that affects all WA beer drinkers and makers.:grimacing:

    Next time do per capita or something. I can tell you, I don't think I've had more than a handful of twist-off beers in the last 5 years or so. I have no idea what that means though, aside from the fact that I enjoy using tools.

    I tried to be concise, but hell, I can be wordy. Sometimes our state is divided into the Blue side and the Red side. One could suppose that the the Red side might, possibly, maybe tend to drink brews that come with twist off caps, which might come from breweries that will, or won't, be more or less affected by people talking in Olympia. Or something. Certainly I'm not recommending a civil discourse on something that might have a major effect on something that might cost a fair number of jobs. An advertiser in Arkansas might think that this wasn't a fun discussion.

    Doesn't matter since there's nothing rare to drink.

    FYI Spokane consumes about 20% craft according to the distributors in the area.

    Not sure if that's more or less than the wet side.

    Definitely. That Wisdom Seeker I had last night was about as common as gray skies up here.

    The Washington Brewers Guild reports that craft beer makes up 25% of the market statewide.
