Here is America's favorite beer
The list of the top 10 brews in the country has changed from last year, a new study reports.
The brand perception tracker asked 5,500 adults across the country if they'd heard anything positive or negative in the last two weeks "through advertising, news or word of mouth" about specific beer brands.
Their answers were scored on a range from 100 (positive) to -100 (negative). YouGov then calculated the final score by subtracting negative feedback from positive. So, a zero score means equal positive and negative feedback.
They found some notable differences from last year's list. Nationwide, Bud Light, Dos Equis, and Heineken rose in the rankings, while Corona and Stella Artois went down.
On YouGov's local list for New York City, Budweiser (BUD) came in at No. 10 compared to No. 2 nationally, Yuengling rated much higher, and Coors and Blue Moon both showed up in the top 10. For more on last year's rankings, click here.

It says nothing about beer ranking by sales consumption. Just whether you have heard about it in the last two weeks via advertising or in the news! So if a Schlitz factory had burned down and made the news nationwide it would be on the list of Americas favorite beers?
It just goes to show you that what passes for journalism ... isnt.
Lager or Amberbock !11
Uncle Nuts, The guy is not Mexican, "The World's most Interesting Man," or something like that.
He advertises Dos Equis beer and lives a quiet life in Vermont or New Hampshire as an American.
Pretty sure he's not even Latino anything ??
MSN at it again, promoting a product because they pulled out of a parade. The progressive, liberal news network that loves to cause division and controversy. Lack of facts, half stories, agenda feed network. What did they only poll NYers?
By the way Sam Adams sucks! like most micro brewed beer. Rice brewed beer like BUD is even worse. If you know anything about beer then the top beers would be German or Canadian, FACT!
