The average American adult consumes about 28 gallons of beer annually — about a six-pack a week — according to Beer Institute, a national trade organization representing the brewing industry.
To determine what we drink the most of — which brews are America’s best-sellers — 24/7 Tempo reviewed data from Beer Marketer’s Insights, an industry tracker and publishing company, ranking sales by barrels shipped in 2020.
Despite the rise of the microbrewing industry, at least three-quarters of the beer consumed in the U.S. is still produced by giants like Belgium-based Anheuser-Busch InBev (the world’s largest beer company) and Molson Coors Beverage Company, headquartered in Golden, Colorado and Montreal. Between them, in fact, they represent more than two-thirds of the beers on this list.
