Our Guinness Intake During The Mayweather-McGregor Fight Was INSANE

When fight day arrives, a common activity that we all partake in is drinking beer. Of course, during the McGregor-Mayweather fight, a lot of us were guzzling brew. As a result, companies have data on what we drank during the epic battle, including our Guinness intake.

The data comes from monitoring company BeerBoard, who observes more than 50,000 draft lines and 30,000 products at Buffalo Wild Wings, Hooters, and more. According to a report made from their fight day observations, our beer intake shot up 36% compared to last week.

Furthermore, Guinness intake went up a whopping 18%, which BeerBoard attributes to the mass of Irish fans rooting for McGregor. Other interesting data to note includes a 15.4% spike in Budweiser consumption and a 11.8% jump in pour volume for Coors Light. IPAs, meanwhile, did extremely well, with one brand (Founders All Day) going up 65%.

Overall, no matter who we were rooting for, the big fight brought us all together through our love of beer. Boy, did we drink.
