In order to detect the most popular beer in America, YouGov Ratings measures the popularity and fame of beer based on millions of responses from the public. It is built on top of their accurate and precise methodology, which the Pew Research Center says “consistently outperformed” other polling companies.
For each beer, YouGov Ratings show nationally representative popularity percentage scores. The positive popularity score is calculated by taking the proportion of people who view something positively and show it as a percentage of all the people who have given any opinion about that beer, including “have heard of”. The same calculation is used for the neutral, negative, and heard of percentage scores shown across the page.
With that being said, according to YouGov Ratings, the most popular beer in America is Guinness, and the 13th most famous. Although no beer was rated over half positive opinions, overall, Guinness did score the highest at 48% and is most popular in the West South Central and South Atlantic Regions. It’s described as good quality, well made, traditional, classic and never gets old.
