IF YOUR ANSWERS WERE MAINLY ‘A’s:
You are a lager – through and through!
You’re sensible, practical, not easily distracted and emotionally steady. You also drive a bakkie, use fresh-breath strips and like shoes that are comfortable. You’re the person who is doing the braaiing (or dating the person doing the braaiing). You may try to brew your own beer sometime soon.
I suggest you try drinking: Boston Premium Lager
IF YOUR ANSWERS WERE MAINLY ‘B’s:
You are a blonde beer!
You’re easy to get along with, socially conservative and not super social. You also enjoy pulling in the distinctions, honour tradition and see issues as black and white. You may have recently bought a banting cookbook.
I suggest you try drinking: Birkenhead Honey Blonde
IF YOUR ANSWERS WERE MAINLY ‘C’s:
You are a Weiss beer!
You are creative, intellectually curious and happy go lucky. You also live on the edge, buy organic and love indie bands no one else has heard of. You’re not afraid of what others think, and you don’t mind missing deadlines.
I suggest you try drinking: CBC Krystal Weiss
IF YOUR ANSWERS ARE MAINLY ‘D’s:
You are an IPA!
You’re a nature lover and you embrace change easily, read philosophy for fun, wear hats, always buy organic and appreciate art photography. You also have many photos on your Instagram account. Your friends may think you’re a little off, but they love you nonetheless. You also like to eat fruit.
I suggest you try drinking: BrewDog Hardcore IPA
IF YOUR ANSWERS ARE MAINLY ‘E’s:
You are a dark beer lover!
You live life with reckless indulgence and can be aggressive and cantankerous, but you have a secret heart of gold. You may love hunting or riding a BMX, and you have pretty thick skin. You also enjoy flavourful curries and want to go to China.
I suggest you try drinking: Apollo Stout
Now that you know your beer personality – go forth and drink your beer of choice to your heart’s content!
Yours in beer,
