London, August 4 (ANI): Beer-drinking Britons spend over a year of their lives at the pub, a survey has revealed.
A study of 2,000 pub-goers showed that they popped into their local for a total of three hours and 34 minutes a week.
Across the average year, that was just under eight days that were spent drinking with friends and family down the local.
And during an average adult lifetime of 60.5 years, Britons would have propped up the bar for a total of 11,220.7 hours or 467.5 days.
When it came to keeping company, 44 percent of people preferred drinking with their partner, while a further third liked to catch up with theirriends.
One in 10 people will drink with their work colleagues.
A good pub is a fundamental part of British culture, the Daily Star quoted a spokesman for traditional pub chain Taylor Walker, which conducted the survey, as saying.
So it's inevitable many adults will spend a large part of their leisure time in their local or trying new ones, he added. (ANI)
