Poll: Will you be having a ‘dry January’?

Non-alcoholic beer sales tripled in Ireland between 2017 and 2021.

Indeed, Ireland has been embracing alcohol-free options in recent years, with non-alcoholic beer sales tripling here between 2017 and 2021.

So today, we want to know: Are you having a ‘dry January’?

Poll Results:

No (7303)
Yes (4612)
I don’t drink alcohol  (2016)
