I’ve started writing the plan. Plans, actually, but that’s for another post.
Thanks for your applause.
I had a question recently that has no straight answer. There are just too many variables. How fast does a bar go through kegs? Some variables:
- The bar
- The beer
- The bartender
- The week
- The weather
- Relative humidity in Antarctica
You know, variables.
Anyway, I thought it could be fun to gather some market research, and what better way to gather lots of data than through the internet! It’s ok though, this research requires people to go to bars.
Here’s the plan. Whenever you’re out, be it a bar, brewpub, restaurant with good beer, whatever, if it’s not too busy, ask the bartender how fast they go through kegs. Ask for as many different taps as you can, or as they know. Obviously Fat Tire will sell faster than 1554, for instance.
Once you have the information, give it to me. Two options: Twitter, or a form.
If you’re using Twitter, use the following format:
BREWERY - BEER - BAR - CITY - STATE - KEGS PER WEEK #bcrp
The hashtag #bcrp stands for Beer Consumption Research Project. Creative, no?
So, an example tweet:
Stone - Arrogant Bastard - Park Tavern - Denver - CO - 3 #bcrp
Or, fill out the form here: http://bit.ly/5c3lnZ
I’ll report the results after I have enough data.
Go! Spread forth and collect beer data!
