However, mass-market beers aren't going anywhere soon. The beer industry shipped 202.2 million barrels, enough to fill more than 2.8 billion boxes of 24 cans or 12-ounce bottles, according to America's Beer Distributors. And 82% of the beer we drank was produced in the country. Only eight of the country's biggest beer brands were imported.
Corona Extra is the most popular Mexican beer in the United States, but this low-calorie alternative (it has 99 calories per 12-ounce bottle, compared to 149 for the Extra) is rapidly gaining followers. Classified as a malt liquor, meaning it has a higher alcohol content than usual (and also slightly sweeter), this hearty concoction has 8.1% alcohol. Created in Veracruz in the 19th century by a German brewmaster, this emblematic Mexican brand was named dos x, which means 20 in Roman numerals, in honor of the then coming 20th century. Beer is not only one of the best-selling in the United States, but also one of the fastest-growing on this list.
Blue Moon is a powerful Belgian-style white beer (5.4% ABV). Although it was created by a Coors brewery and is now owned by the huge company MillerCoors, it calls itself America's No. The Brewers Association has opposed their so-called artisanal identification. This Pilsner-type beer, which dates back to 1903, was one of the first major bottled beers, although it is now also commonly sold in cans.
Brewer Frederick Miller called it “The champagne of beers”, referring to its supposedly luxurious quality. This light triple filter beer, made by Coors in Colorado, has just 101 calories per 12 ounces. Brewed in the Netherlands for more than 150 years, Heineken is one of the most recognized and distributed beer brands around the world, and is still one of the most popular lagers in the world. Originally known as Busch Bavarian Beer, it was the first beer introduced by Anheuser-Busch after Prohibition (long after Prohibition) (1955), while anti-alcohol legislation was repealed in 193. The snowy mountains of La Tin reflect the brand's claim to be as crisp and cold as a mountain stream.
This lighter brother to the original Busch has slightly less alcohol (4.1% versus 4.3%), but it earns its lightweight designation with 95 calories per 12-ounce can (nine less than Busch) and 3.2 grams of carbohydrates, about half of what its namesake has. This light beer is the beer of choice for drinkers who follow a low-carb diet, with only 2.6 grams of carbohydrates per 12-ounce bottle, making it the fifth lowest on the market and the only one with enough sales to qualify for this list. Based on sales volume, America's 10 best beers are a mix of time-tested traditional favorites and newer, modern selections. Budweiser beer is an American lager beer brewed by Anheuser-Busch.
With the unofficial title of “The King of Beers”, it's no wonder Budweiser tops this list of America's most popular beers. Budweiser may be the “queen of beers”, but I think the Miller Lite has a much more drinkable quality. This alternative beer is a fantastic substitute for people who find Budweiser to be too heavy and filling. Miller Lite is still an American lager beer, but they emphasize lightness in flavor and calorie content.
Michelob Ultra is another offering from Anheuser-Busch, and it's one of the lowest calorie beers you'll find on the market. Many people love to drink beer, but they fear the so-called beer belly that those extra calories can provide, and Michelob Ultra occupied that niche market. As a beer lover, I can't say that the Michelob Ultra flavor is my favorite, since I prefer to drink less beer that offers more malt flavor. If you've ever seen a Coors Light commercial when you were thirsty, you've probably felt your mouth watering when you saw the condensation against the cold Rocky Mountains on the can.
Coors Brewing Company introduced this beer in 1978, making it one of the most famous American beers in history. Corona Extra is a Mexican beer made by Grupo Modelo, and it's one of the cleanest beers you'll ever try (as evidenced by the images of its transparent bottling). My favorite way to enjoy a Corona beer is on the beach or by the pool, often with a slice of lime to add more acidity. As someone who grew up watching my parents and friends drink Heineken beer at just about every party, I can never confuse the classic green bottle with a red star.
Heineken began brewing beer in 1873 in Amsterdam, and it is now one of the best-selling beers around the world, including in the United States. Natural Light, a beer that many of my college friends would fondly call “natty light,” is another light beer from Anheuser-Busch. While Natural Light might not be enough at a fancy party or cocktail hour, you can opt for Heineken, as it's a fantastic beer for those all-day barbecues. Busch Light is once again another lightly brewed American beer from Anheuser-Busch.
You'll notice a less intense flavor and body in Busch Light, but for most consumers, it seems that the fewer calories deserve that sacrifice. While Busch Light isn't my favorite American light beer, I appreciate the unique hop scent it gives me. Anheuser-Busch made Bud Light an even lighter version of Budweiser, while capturing the flavor of rice and the refreshing profile of hops. Modelo Especial is another Mexican lager from Grupo Modelo, the same brewery that produces Corona.
And like Grupo Modelo's other popular beer, Corona Extra, this beer goes really well with a slice of lime, especially when paired with food. For me, this beer is similar in quality to Coors in the way it balances the initial intensity with a pleasant aftertaste. Most of the beers on this list are slightly better than toilet water. The craft beer industry is growing every year.
The fact that Budweiser is still king only proves that Americans don't know what good beer is. They continue to drink urine water with cheap, tasteless ingredients. While seasonal changes result in different beer selections at grocery stores and restaurants, most people living in the United States have probably noticed that the same top beers are offered everywhere throughout the year. While I enjoy craft beer as much as anyone, there's a reason these best-selling beers dominate the market: they have a predictable price and a consistent flavor that people love.
Schmidt (184) brewed a beer that became known as the official beer of the American athlete, taking advantage of the exciting and adventurous appeal of the Pacific Northwest. The vast majority of America's favorite beers are American-made or imported from Mexico, but this iconic Irish brand is an exception. This light beer has been gaining popularity in recent years, as it offers a unique version of one of the beer market's favorites. You'll find that most, if not nearly all, beer brands support rights and inclusion for everyone, no matter who they are.
Tropic Storm is a great tasting beer that has an alcohol percentage of 5%, but has a lighter flavor than most beers with the same alcohol content. Molson also produced India Beer, a popular beer brand on the inner-city music scene not long ago. If you want to enjoy a beer without feeling overwhelmed or too full, Mascot Sun is perfect for those who like to drink light beers. Low-calorie beer was invented by a chemist at the Rheingold Brewing Company in 1967 and was sold under a couple of different brands until 1972, when Miller bought it, reformulated it and launched it as Miller Lite in 1975. Heineken doesn't want to compete with the success of its own brand in the US market, so that's probably because Amstel Light is the only Amstel beer you can buy in the United States.
It has an alcohol content of 4.2%, but it has a lighter flavor than most beers that have the same percentage of alcohol, making it one of the best options for those looking for a lighter beer with a higher alcohol content. .
