True or false?

Do people who drink wine in bars tend to be a little bit more snobby or up their own arse than beer drinkers?

That's a strange stereotypical question for you to ask!

I love wine.
Its something that came up in someone elses conversation recently that i overheard.

"I cant stand people who drink wine, pretending its got a fucking fruity bouquet and all that bollox. They are up their own arses"

I don't think the snobby stereotype is a strong now.Nowadays with how pervasive "dinner" wine drinking is among lads and casual tv wine is even among teenage girls I know

But I still think its there to an extent, maybe more of a girlie than a snobby
stereotype. You wouldn't catch my lads from Whitestown drinking wine for example

I probably know more Craft Beer snobs though!

I hate going to Tesco and being sneered at by someone buying a 4.99 bottle of Chateaux Yellow Pack, while I'm picking up my beer.

Since the wine went up again in the budget its more out of the reach of working class people.
I like this, what is the point in drinking wine if everyone else can.

I doubt it.

Wine is associated with snobbery because weekend newspapers have columns and programmes on radio or TV that deal with wines go on about the bouquet and the hint of raspberry and rugby sock, and restaurants provide a wine list from which you are supposed to pick one that goes with your choice of food. You don't get with beers to the same extent. (There are some columns on beers, and occasionally some food progammes deal with varietie sof beer, but not remotely as much.)

But I don't know of a pub where the coice of wines is as extensive as that in a restaurant. And I could never imagine being at the bar and saying "Oh no, not the 2007 yield, please. The 2008 Merlot from Chateau de Serame sooo is better than the 2007 crop". If you're drinking wine in a pub, you're either slumming it or just prefer wine to beer.
