Craft beer makes up 7.8% of the total U.S. beer market by volume, according to a 2013 report from the Brewers Association.
Even as more places in Anytown, U.S.A. amp up their craft beer offerings, for the most part, America’s still a light lager kind of country.
The most popular beer in the U.S. is Bud Light—by a couple billion dollars. Yes, Bud Light’s U.S. sales alone would lodge it firmly within the Fortune 500. Check out the details below, courtesy of booze-focused website VinePair. (Note: All data used comes from 2013 information from IRI and Beer Advocate, but the numbers are likely still pretty accurate.)
Bud Light beats out number two placeholder Coors Light by nearly $3.5 billion. In terms of volume, Bud Light sells almost three times as many cases as Coors Light.
This data makes us wonder why Budweiser, which is ranked #3 on that list, fired shots at craft beer in their now-infamous Super Bowl 2015 ad. Anheuser-Busch seems to be doing just fine when it comes to sales.
Also worth noting: The only three brands to crack the top 20 that aren’t owned by ABI, MillerCoors, or Constellation are Heineken, PBR, and Yuengling—and Yuengling is also the only privately owned beer on this list. Additionally, the only three non-domestic beers on the list are Corona Extra, Heineken, and Modelo Especial.
