The List of America’s Top Selling Beers Might Surprise You
There's a new list out of the bestselling beers in the U.S. and while you're blowing the froth off of a couple with your "buds", you can compare and contrast the latest crazy results on America's favorite suds.
*Bud Light is the most popular beer by FAR. It did $5.2 billion in sales last year, which is more than double the runner up, Coors Light.
*If you've seen a Miller Lite commercial recently touting the fact that it's only got one more calorie than Michelob Ultra, here's why: Michelob Ultra actually PASSED Miller Lite as the number three beer in America.
*Modelo Especial is the fifth bestselling beer in the country, thanks to a 18.9% jump in sales. It even outsells Budweiser, which came in sixth, and Corona, which is seventh.
*Maybe the most surprising beer on the list, though? BUD ICE. Ahh, Bud Ice, which is apparently still on sale? It was the 16th best selling beer in America, with $317 million in sales, beating out beers like PBR and Blue Moon.
In a completely unrelated story, other than it's more about beer, Busch Light is celebrating fall latte season by releasing "Busch Latte" in the Midwest . . . it's the same beer but it says "Latte" instead of "Light" on the packaging. It's their tongue-in-cheek tribute to old coffee ads.
