90% of domestic beer sold in the US is made by two companies: Anheuser-Busch InBev and MillerCoors.
Two companies, Anheuser-Busch InBev and MillerCoors, are responsible for selling more than 90% of the beer in the US. Americans consume about 6.3 billion gallons (23.85 billion liters) of beer per year and spend an estimated $200 billion US Dollars per year on beer. Anheuser-Busch InBev produced three of the top-five selling beers in the US in 2011, and MillerCoors produced the other two. In 2011, small, independent craft breweries accounted for about 6% of all beer sales in the US, up from roughly 1% 15 years earlier, and that percentage was projected to keep rising.
My current favorite:
I think every person of age should have a “beerigation” system of their own.
Bud and Coors? I thought the article was about beer.
Sam Adams’ Summer Ale.
90% of all hamburgers consumed come from McDonalds and Burger King too, which is also a very sad statement.
Fortunately there are hundreds of good quality beers in the marketplace so the 10% of us that know better have plenty of choices.
left anheuser in my rear view mirror years ago...of late, have developed a fondness for Sam Adams in their various flavors.
recently obtained a home brew kit, and bottled my first batch yesterday...a summer ale. all went well, and two weeks out, I should have some home brew. Then, on to a different recipe.
Then you should be on the Beer Thirty ping list!
Why drink Miller or Bush when there is much better tasting beers like these avalable?
And home brew.
Rogue Ales has some excellent brews and now they are into spirits as well. I haven’t tasted them yet, though...
Both companies are foreign owned. But I do not care.
mmmmmmmm, Yuengling black and tan.
Bud on tap is a great beer imo.
Many of the craft beers are about lots of sugar.
