The sum of all beers: How the way we booze is changing
Sunday, 29 January
Millennials and Gen Z are ditching the booze, while older generations are sticking to the same habits. What does this changing approach to drinking by young people mean? Professor John Holmes of the University of Sheffield joins Ros Taylor to find out what our drinking habits tell us about society as a whole.
“Young people are drinking less in most high income countries. They’re either not drinking at all, drinking smaller amounts, and binge drinking less often.”
“Across the Covid period, about a quarter of people drank less, about a quarter drank more.”
“The Government is getting a political bonus from taxing beer less, but getting a revenue bonus from taxing wine more.”
