Stella is everyone's favorite pilsner. Although it was originally launched as a seasonal Christmas beer, fans quickly took notice of Stella Artois and it was on the European market by 1930. Stella traveled over to the States in 1999. According to the unofficial Stella Artois Blog:

The brand has been around for a while – in fact since 1926 and during that time it has become the biggest name in pale lager market segment. Stella was first brewed to cater to the increasingly vocal and brand conscious market in Europe – and the growing numbers who wanted a Pilsner style beer.

Stella has a crisp taste, and as the Stella Blog puts it, the "light malt fragrances give a fairly sweet herbal signature and a lingering hoppy finish." Stella has a premium, but reachable, feel. It can be your after-work beer if you're feeling fancy, or the perfect choice at dinner with friends.

Stella is an extremely refreshing beer. It's subtle flavor means almost everyone can appreciate it, and when it comes with such a beautiful presentation, how can you not? Most beers don't come to you via a chalice....

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.
