YouGov is a data analytics website that routinely conducts researches and surveys, especially concerning public opinion on popular consumer products, and in the latest survey, the website has put together a list of popular beers in America and I was a bit surprised to find out that the most popular beer is... Guinness.

It's important to note that YouGov was not trying to compile a list based on sales, which is why best-selling brands like Budweiser and Bud Light "only" rank 5th and 16th respectively. The research was conducted by aggregating likeability ratings of a range of popular beers, putting together answers from surveyed individuals regarding 'popularity', whether people rank a particular brand of beer as positive or negative, and 'fame', how many people are familiar with the brand regardless of positive or negative opinion.

Guinness, the most popular beer according to survey, scored 90% in fame and 51% in popularity, whereas Budweiser, America's best-selling beer in 2020 with $7,070,113,300 in sales, scored 96% in fame and 35% in popularity.

Here's the full list.

1. Guinness – fame 90%, popularity 51%

2. Heineken – fame 93%, popularity 49%

3. Corona – fame 94%, popularity 49%

4. Samuel Adams – fame 91%, popularity 44%

5. Budweiser – fame 96%, popularity 41%

6. Blue Moon – fame 82%, popularity 41%

7. Coors – fame 94%, popularity 39%

8. Miller – fame 93%, popularity 39%

9. Corona Extra – fame 88%, popularity 39%

10. Modelo – fame 76%, popularity 39%

11. Miller High Life – fame 89%, popularity 38%

12. Stella Artois – fame 78%, popularity 38%

13. Miller Lite – fame 95%, popularity 37%

14. Corona Light – fame 94%, popularity 37%

15. Coors Light – fame 94%, popularity 36%

16. Bud Light – fame 97%, popularity 35%

17. Miller Genuine Draft – fame 86%, popularity 34%

18. Pabst Blue Ribbon – fame 88%, popularity 34%

19. Dos Equis – fame 74%, popularity 33%

    • Guinness is the better out of them all but I still don't like it. It is to creamy and tastes flat. Guinness extra stout is ok. I prefer strong Russian imperial stouts and sometimes imperial IPA.
