Someone said :
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?
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.
