#HopAction – What’s your favourite type of at-home craft beer packaging?


It’s never been a better time to be a craft beer fan in Ireland. The choice right now is so awesome from our own breweries, to imported craft beers from around the globe. And with that huge choice of brands, the choice in beer packaging today is equally awesome. Cans (330ml/400ml/500ml), bottles (330ml/500ml/600ml bombers), & growlers. Granted we don’t yet have crowlers, but none the less it’s fantastic.

This week we’re asking what’s your favourite type of beer packaging?

Last week’s Results:

Thank you to everyone who took part in last week’s #HopAction on twitter. Last week we asked:

What’s your weekly spend on craft beer like, & what drives your spending habits?

And the results were not as I expected. Given the average craft beer in Ireland is under a fiver, it would seem over half of the people polled go from buying two to six craft beers a week to consume at home, with a fifth presumably buying anywhere from two to three beers from either the supermarket own-brand ones to market staples like BrewDog’s core range etc, which are generally under three of your euro-monopoly monies.

Even more surprising was almost one eighth of respondants spend more than fifty merkels a week on at-home beers. Crikey!!!!!!


One of my absolute favourite responses to a beer poll on twitter ever came from Tin Pot Man:
