With the weekend’s St. Patrick’s Day festivities ahead of us, we’re starting the celebration a little early at Column Five. Then again, we do that every week in honor of Beer Friday. We’ve always wondered, though, exactly what—and how much—we actually drink each Friday, so we decided to find out.
The following visualization is based on data collected from 45 Column Five employees, tracking all beverages consumed during work hours (with the exception of water) over the course of one Beer Friday. Ounces were tracked using the following general guidelines: beer (12 oz.), soda (12 oz.), coffee/tea (8 oz.), hard liquor (1 oz.), etc.
