America’s favorite beer doesn’t come from, well, America — it comes from the Netherlands.
Heineken topped the list of America’s most popular beer, according to a survey by YouGov. Drinkers said the Dutch beer was enjoyable because it had a smooth and refreshing taste. They also said they considered Heineken a good quality beer.
Americans also enjoyed heavyweights like Guinness, Samuel Adams, Corona, and Budweiser, which rounded out the top five.
Baby Boomers were strongly in favor of Heineken, which 48% had a positive opinion of. Gen Xers said their favorite beer was Samuel Adams, with fans calling it a unique beer and a “must have.”
Although Millennials are often labeled as craft beer enthusiasts, those pricey hops are not the most popular beer amongst the group.
Guinness topped the list as Millennials’ most popular drinking choice due to its classic taste and never-gets-old feeling. Blue Moon, which was once questioned for whether it was a craft beer, was the highest of the title at No. 4 on the list.
Other popular craft beers that appealed to Millennials were Fat Tire and Dogfish Head.
The survey interviewed over 7,500 people to compile the data.
