Washingtonians Dropped Almost $3,000 in After-Work Drinks on Average
Do you like to go out for a drink with co-workers? If so, you may have contributed to the state average. According the Alcohol.com, the average citizen in Washington had spent $2,627 in drinks after work in 2019 and the stats don't stop there.
$2,627 is no small chunk of change, either. That's about 650 beers.
Many enjoy it and might even consider it part of their 'work day' as 1/3 of people believe it helps with team building. I could see that happening. They also said these after-work sessions last almost 2 hours and that 1 in 10 do shots for drinks after work. Interesting.
It's fun to see what other states listed as well. Oregon is almost $1,000 more than us. Kentucky has us all beat at $5,530, on average. Good lord.
All in all, I thought this was interesting so wanted to pass it along to you. Thanks to Alcohol.com for the info! Check out that site for more states to see where they land.
