Bud Light has been in the news a lot recently, but that’s not helping its popularity. A new survey from YouGov reveals the most popular beer in the U.S. and Bud Light doesn’t make the top 10.
The poll asked 14-hundred Americans how aware they were of 75 different brands of beer and how they feel about each one. The results show that Guinness is the most popular beer in the country, as 98% know the Irish brew and 58% have a positive attitude toward it. To compare, Bud Light is also recognized by 98% of respondents, but it only has 42% popularity.
The Top 10 Most Popular Beers
- Samuel Adams
- Blue Moon
- Corona Extra
- Stella Artois
The most popular beers vary slightly by generation:
- Among millennials it’s Guinness, Modelo, White Claw (we know it’s not a beer, but YouGov calls it a beer), Bud Light and Blue Moon
- For Gen X, the top five includes Guinness, Corona, Heineken, Stella Artois and Samuel Adams
- And for baby boomers the top five are Samuel Adams, Guinness, Heineken, Corona and Blue Moon.
