London, Aug 4 (IANS) Britons, known for their love for lager, spend more than a year of their lives in the pub, a study has found.
In an average week, Britons head out at least twice, for a period of three hours and 34 minutes, The Sun reported citing the poll of 2,000 adults by pub chain Taylor Walker.
During the average drinking lifetime of 60.5 years - after the legal age of 18 - Britons spend 11,220.7 hours or 467.5 days at the bar.
A “typical” drinker spends around 125,000 pounds on their favourite drink over their lifetime. Lager was found to be the most commonly-bought drink.
A total of 44 percent Britons prefer drinking with a partner, while some like to catch up with friends, and one in 10 drink with work colleagues.
