These days, beers come in countless variations. From alcohol level to the color of the brew, there’s a beer type for everyone. World Population Review recently published a report that details Pennsylvania’s most popular beer brand.
Pennsylvania has many homegrown craft breweries. Yuengling has become a prominent force in the domestic beer industry. In addition, they are the official beer of the Philadelphia Phillies. Latrobe Brewing Company also had a deep history in the state (with Rolling Rock) before it was sold. Still with all the hop creativity in the Keystone State, Pennsylvania’s beer brand choice was the same as four other states.
The lighter version of the “King of Beers” is the beer king of Pennsylvania. There’s nothing wrong with consistency and being comfortable with a traditional flavor you can count on. Bud Light has been popular in the market since it was introduced in 1982. It contains 4.2% alcohol by volume and only 110 calories per 12 ounces. They have classic branding with a logo and label that is recognizable all around the world. Though they do not have a main brewery in Pennsylvania, they do have major distributors and wholesale partners all over the state. In addition, there is a Bud brewery in nearby Newark, NJ.
It was a wide gap between Budweiser claiming 23 states where their beer was the most popular, and the second place brew. Five states’ were aligned to Bud Light as their choice beverage. Miller Lite was third, claiming Indiana and New Jersey.
As we head toward Memorial Day weekend and the outdoor concert season, it’s very likely you will see plenty of Pennsylvania’s most popular beer on tap.
