Favorite beer brands of U.S. beer drinkers 2017
Second ranks an American beer brand: Bud Light is consumed by 36% of the American consumers. It is also the top selling domestic beer brand in the United States with US$2 billion worth of sales in 2017.

From 2012 to 2018, the number of breweries more than tripled in the United States.

Thus, it is hardly surprising that position five within the ranking of the U.S.’ favorite beers is taken by a craft beer, namely Blue Moon.
