After publishing the guide of the most popular U.S. beers, Vinepair magazine set out to find the world’s most popular beer. Spanning over 100 countries, they put together market research and corporate filings to reveal the most popular brew in each country. What resulted was a map which shows us the beer brands from around the world are as diverse as our planet itself.
We can say that this map is not so surprising but the interesting thing is how different the international beer scene is. Obviously, we find Iceland with the “Viking” beer and Ireland with its tride and tride and true “Guinness”.
Of course you know that if you find yourself in Greece during a trip, the best beer you can order is “Mythos”, as well as “Corona” in Mexico. But, we know that one of your major concerns is what to drink if you find yourself in Laos, but now you can relax because the most popular beer there is the “Beerlao” (We guess the taste must be more sophisticated than the name!).
More about other beer surprises found on this map? Australia’s most popular beer is not “Foster” as you may think, but instead “Victoria Bitter”; Iran prefers a non-alcoholic beer called “Light” (shocking); Chinese drinkers prefer “Snow” beer, while in Columbia there is a beer named “Poker”. Not sure if this last one is a surprise or not to you, but the tasteless Bud Light is the top selling beer in the US! Probably so they can drink more of it!
But, unfortunately “most popular” doesn’t always mean “better”.
If you want to know more about the top 100 beers in the world, you can take a look to another chart made by BeerAdvocate.com which reports the top 100 tasting beers in the world in one beautiful visualization!
Here you’ll find the high resolution version !
So, if you’re about to move to another country , first make sure you know the best beer there, and then, start your relocation on Goguin and find everything you may need!
And, anyway, cheers guys!
