America's favorite beer: Bud Light or Corona?
Whether you're drinking green beer for St. Patrick's Day or knocking back a six pack in the middle of March Madness, everyone has a go-to beer of choice. Some prefer dark and more flavorful beers, others mild, while some simply prefer their beer to be cold. Which beer wins out?
Here's the thing about Bud Light: It knows exactly what it is. Insider's "cheap" beer review perfectly sums it up:
Bud Light was crisp, sweet, and had just the right amount of fizz to it. While we weren't blown away by this contender, it was certainly a solid choice.
According to the taste-testers, some felt Bud Light was sweet, while others thought it was tangy. Either way, this beer gets the job done. Bud Light isn't trying to sell itself to customers who are after a full-bodied, flavorful experience—it's after customers who want to snag a 24-pack before the game. This beer goes down easy, without making you feel so full that you can't enjoy the game-day food spread.
Bud Light has made a new name for itself in recent years with it's now iconic Bud Knight. But the brand took things to the next level during Super Bowl LIII with what can only be described as the greatest crossover ad of all time.
The night may be dark and full of terrors, but at least we know there will be Bud Light. Dilly dilly!
Bud Light is consistently America's top-selling beer. Whether this title is a result of the beer's mild taste, the right price, or it's calorie count, Americans have favored Bud Light from the early 2000s-onward. With only 110 calories and 6.6 grams of carbs per 12-ounce bottle, many customers choose Bud Light so they can enjoy the party without the guilt. Shape Magazine even ranked Bud Light as the No. 1 bikini-friendly beer.
According to 60 percent of Tylters out there, Corona is the best beer to crack open after work. Who needs Bud Light–just grab a lime wedge, some chips and salsa, and you're ready for that "Game of Thrones" premiere!
Corona is another great choice if you don't want to be weighed down by your beer. It's perfect to pair with a meal or to drink at a game. As one fan describes the taste of Corona:
It may not have rich notes that some love, or special characteristics, but what it gains is wide appeal and a product that you can't really hate, even if you don't absolutely love it. It is a very refreshing beer to drink when compared to a heavier lager or IPA.
Plus, the iconic lime wedge brings its own flavor to the mix:
It adds the citric acidity that pairs well with the light beer and gives it a unique zing that you don't find in other easily available beers.
Plus, according to Statista, Corona ranks as America's leading imported beer brand. If Corona is good enough for Dominic Toretto from "Fast and Furious," it's good enough for everyone. According to The Ringer's Andrew Gruttadaro, Corona is a unifying symbol throughout the "Fast and Furious" franchise:
"It’s literally a character in the films," says Chris Morgan, who’s written the screenplay for every Fast movie since the third, Tokyo Drift.
Corona's brand placement in the movie is worth many millions of dollars, but no one shelled out any cash to secure Toretto's preference; the franchise's creators simply felt that Corona would be the character's choice.
The numbers speak for themselves–Corona is a classic.
