Why do most men prefer beer over wine? Is it because of the taste or a lack of knowledge of wine?
I'd say "both." I'm very ignorant concerning wine, but I do know that I typically prefer the taste of beer.
While I personally prefer beer (which is just as subtle and varied as wine - Budweiser is *a* beer, not indicative of the beer world as a whole), I know just as many men who prefer wine as those that prefer beer.
So I'd have to go with it being a matter of taste. I also know plenty of men who prefer scotch over either wine or beer.
Some men believe that beer is more 'masculine' and would rather have a beer can (or bottle) in their hands than a wine glass full of wine. I think alot of it depends on their surroundings at the moment; around a bonfire on the lake=Beer, at a business dinner when the boss is having wine=Wine. It could be from lack of knowledge of wine just because they have never been in a situation to appreciate it. In my female point-of-view it is their 'manhood image' that decides what to order at the bar.
It could be either one, I guess, but usually people can decide strictly with taste what they like better...They don't need to be experts on the subject, but everyone knows what their own personal preferences are...
