New Study Says Budweiser Most Popular Beer Among Injured E.R. Patients

A new study completed by John Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health discloses that Budweiser is the most popular beer among injured people admitted to hospital emergency rooms.

Health care experts estimate that about one third of all patients admitted to hospital emergency rooms with injuries involve alcohol.

According to a recent article, Budweiser represents about 9.1% of all beer sales in the country, in the John Hopkins study it represented 15% of injured people that showed up in emergency rooms.

Budweiser was followed up by Steel Reserve, Colt 45, Bud Ice, and another malt liquor, King Cobra.  the four latter brands account for only 2.4 percent of the U.S. beer market, but accounted for 46 percent of the beer consumed by E.R. patients.

Some experts suggest that the reason these particular brands are being exposed in this study is the way they are marketed, whom they’re marketed to, and where the study was held, which was one hospital in Baltimore located in a mostly African – American neighborhood.
