A British University has closed its Student Union bar because of a dwindling demand for alcohol from its students who increasingly prefer coffee to beer.
Abertay University, located in Dundee, Scotland, said that stocking alcohol at Bar One was no longer viable as the income generated from sales has “dropped drastically” in recent years.
Alcohol sales at the venue, which opened in 2005, have plummeted by two-thirds since 2014, as young people are choosing to spend their money on non-alcoholic alternatives such as coffee.
Might there be religious reasons for this? The religious structure of the population, as with that of race, being very different across the age cohorts.
