10 Most Popular Beers in the World (Updated 2021)

Beer is a beloved alcoholic beverage around the world, and it is even part of the culture in some countries.

The countries with the highest consumption of beer double as beer producers.

The Czech Republic is famed as the home country of pilsner, and the Czechs drank 143.3 liters of beer per person in 2016.

Other beer capitals include Austria, Germany, and Ireland. A significant chunk of the world’s popular beers are unknown in the US, and they include:

1. Snow

Snow is the world’s best-selling beer, which is interesting because most people outside China have never heard of it. This lager has its origins in Shenyang city, Liaoning Province, and it is named for its white foams

Over 101 million hectoliters of the beer were sold in 2017, which was twice the amount of Budweiser sold worldwide. Snow beer commands almost 30% of the Chinese beer market.

The beer has a relatively short market history, having been launched in 1993. It is mostly produced in Beijing, although it enjoys massive popularity in North-East China.

Snow beer is mainly sold in China, where it is preferred for being cheap and easy to drink, in addition to having only a mere 120 calories.

2. Budweiser

Budweiser is a popular beer in the US, although it has been witnessing declining sales across the country.

Budweiser is one of the flagship brands of the Belgian brewing giant AB InBEV, the other one being Bud Light.

Budweiser, or the king of beers, was overthrown by Bud Light for the top spot among American beer drinkers in 2001.

AB InBEV has been promoting Budweiser in other markets like China, South Africa, and Australia. The company ran an expensive 2018 FIFA World Cup campaign to boost the growth of Budweiser in emerging markets

and improve its sales volume, which was 29.2 million hectoliters in 2017.

3. Tsingtao

Tsingtao beer enjoys 15% of China’s beer market, and its sales volume was 49 million hectoliters in 2017.

The history of the brew goes back to the short-lived German occupation of the Chinese city Qingdao. The Germans drew mineral water from the Laoshan spring and used their traditional brewing methods to make a pilsner.

Tsingtao is the most popular Chinese beer, and it is sold in over 70 nations worldwide. The brewery runs the Qingdao International Beer festival every year to promote Tsingtao beer and popularize beer culture.

4. Bud Light

Bud Light is the light beer flagship of AB InBEV. It is the top-selling beer in the US, where it faces stiff competition from Coors Light and Miller Lite.

Bud Light was launched in 1982 as an American-style light lager with a crisp aroma and fast finish. Its low ABV and low calories make it a favorite among American beer drinkers.

AB InBEV shipped over 33 million barrels of Bud Light in 2017, and about 44.8 million hectoliters of the drink were sold in the same year. It is sold internationally in Sweden, Ireland, Canada, Colombia, and Mexico.

5. Skol

Skol is the 5th top-selling beer in the world. Its Swedish name alludes to the beer’s Scandinavian inspiration, although its current largest market is in Brazil.

The beer was first produced in Alloa, Scotland, by Ind Coope breweries with equipment sourced from Sweden. About 35.1 million hectoliters of the beer were sold in 2017.

Skol is recognized as Brazilian beer, although it is produced and marketed by different brands in other regions. Carlsberg retains the license to manufacture and distribute the beer worldwide except in South America and Africa.

The beer is sold in Romania, Turkey, China, Singapore, and Malaysia. Unibra sells the brew in African in countries like Rwanda, Burundi, Angola, and Madagascar.

6. Heineken

Heineken is perhaps one of the best-known beer brands in the world, and it is sold in a notable green bottle with a red star.

This Dutch brew is produced by Heineken International and sold in over 170 countries. An estimated 34.3 million hectoliters of Heineken were sold in 2017.

Heineken’s history began with a brewer named Gerard Adriaan Heineken, who convinced his affluent mother to purchase the De Hooiberg brewery in Amsterdam.

From the get-go, Heineken was keen on the quality of his brew. He used ‘Yeast A’ and specialized his fermentation technique to get a crisp and unforgettable taste. This quality earned the beer medals in Paris and Amsterdam.

Today, Heineken enjoys worldwide popularity, thanks to its marketing strategies. Its ads are notorious for having surprising twists, and it sponsors celebrated sporting events like the UEFA Champions League.

7. Harbin

Harbin, also owned by AB InBEV, is the oldest beer brand in China. The company has introduced the brew in North American and European markets, but you will have more luck finding it in ethnic Chinese supermarkets in the US.

This pale lager has an abv of 4.8%, and it is currently marketed as a millennial drink in China.

Harbin has been sponsoring e-Sport events to attract 18-29 years old Chinese males who actively engage with such activities. The brand’s disruptive marketing strategies seem to be working as it sold 29. 9 million hectoliters of Harbin in 2017.

8. Yanjing

Yanjing beer is produced by the Beijing Yanjing Brewery, located in China’s capital. The brewery began production in 1980, and it reached a production capacity of 57.1 million hectoliters in 2013.

This state-owned brewery is the 3rd largest brewery in China, and Yanjing beer enjoys popularity in Beijing, Inner Mongolia, and Guangxi.

9. Corona

Corona is another beer brand of AB InBEV, and the Cerveceria Modelo brewery produces it in Mexico.

About 28.8 million hectoliters were sold worldwide in 2017, and it was also the top beer imported in the US in the same year.

10. Coors Light

Coors Light is notable for its mountain icon that includes two peaks. The brew’s history goes back to 1978 when the Coors Brewing company first produced it.

It is currently manufactured in several US states, including Colorado, Georgia, Virginia, and Milwaukee, and it is the second-best-selling beer in the country.

Conclusion

The world’s most popular beers include notable brands like Heineken and Budweiser, as well as brews that are sold almost exclusively in China, like Snow and Harbin.

Also present are two of American favorites: Bud Light and Coors Light.

Budweiser ranked the most valuable beer brand in the world

Worth $7.5bn, the Anheuser-Busch brand’s value has increased 6%, attributed to its global sponsorship campaign with the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

Brewing giant AB InBev has 11 brands in Brand Finance Beers 25 rankings, while Scottish independent brewer BrewDog is the highest new entrant in the chart (taking 19th​ position with a brand value of $1.5bn).

China’s Snow and Tsingtao brands recorded the fastest growth, up 52% and 49% respectively, while Aguila is ranked as the world’s strongest beer brand.

How Bud became king

Budweiser claims the top spot as the world’s most valuable beer brand for the first time, overtaking long-standing leader Bud Light.

Budweiser’s FIFA World Cup campaign last year was the brand’s most expensive to date, reaching 3. 2 billion football fans globally. Perhaps more important, however, was that it enabled Budweiser to accelerate growth in new markets,​​ including South Africa, Colombia, China and Australia.

While Budweiser grew 6.2% in value, Bud Light fell 5% to $7bn, leaving it second in the rankings.  

“Budweiser and Bud Light, the flagship brands of Belgian brewing giant AB InBev, have had to contend with the changing consumer drinking habits across the US,” ​says Brand Finance in its report.

“The general decline in beer consumption across millennials, and the preference for healthier alcohol-free alternatives have contributed to the slowdown in their brand value growth compared to previous years.

“The AB InBev portfolio still dominates the rankings, however, with 11 brands claiming spots in the top 25, down from 13 last year.”

Heineken takes the number 3 spot in the rankings, with a brand value of $6.7bn, up 11% from last year.

Fastest growth comes from China

This year it is Asian – and particularly Chinese – beer brands that are recording the highest value growth.

“With demand for beer at an all-time high in China and predictions of inflated growth over the coming years as a result of greater disposable income from the emerging middle class, this trend looks set to continue,” ​observes Brand Finance. “If these brands begin to expand beyond China and into new markets, we could potentially see some very stiff competition to established Western beer brands.”

China’s Snow is the fastest-growing brand in the rankings and reaches the top 10 for the first time this year, with a 52% rise in brand value to $3.7bn. Snow is already the best-selling beer in the world with 101.2 million hectolitres of beer sold per year – more than double that of Budweiser’s sales.

“The brand, which historically has only been sold in China, has made a number of strategic partnerships in order to raise its global presence, notably with Dutch brewing giant Heineken and America’s Molson Coors,” ​observes Brand Finance.

Tsingtao (up 49% to $1.7bn) has risen nine places in the ranking, more than any other brand.

“The brand continues to retain its loyal customer base in its home country and is also the most exported Chinese beer, sold in over 100 countries and regions globally. As with other Chinese brands, Tsingtao faces fierce competition from other global brewing giants but despite this, Tsingtao has recorded strong sales growth over the last year.”

One to watch: BrewDog

Maverik Scottish craft beer brand, BrewDog, is the highest new entrant in the ranking in 19th position, with a brand value of $1.5bn.

“The brand is undertaking ambitious growth plans across key international markets, with new breweries and bars in the pipeline both at home in the UK and abroad,” ​observes Brand Finance.

“Its flagship beer, Punk IPA, is already the number one craft beer in the UK and the brand is striving to make it the beer of choice internationally. The brand is committed to expansion, with gin and vodka already in its portfolio, it is widening its reach further by entering into the whiskey market, in a bid to make it more playful. In 2018, BrewDog announced its foray into the hotels business, opening the doors to the world’s first craft beer hotel, The DogHouse.”

Determining brand value

Brand value is determined by the net economic benefit that a brand owner would achieve by licensing the brand in the open market.

Brand Finance also evaluates the relative strength of brands, based on factors such as marketing investment, familiarity, loyalty, staff satisfaction, and corporate reputation. According to this criteria, Colombia’s Aguila is the world’s strongest beer brand with a Brand Strength Index (BSI) score of 88.41 out of 100 and a corresponding AAA brand strength rating.

Most Popular Beer of Every Country in the World – Travel Up

Beer is the world’s most widely consumed and probably the oldest alcoholic beverage. It is the third most popular drink overall, after water and tea.

While some people collect ref magnets or keychains when they travel, it’s been a goal of mine to try beer from as many countries as possible. I decided to do some research on national beers when I came across this awesome World Beer Map from VinePair.com that shows the most popular beer brands around the world.

Just looking at the names and labels of the beer, you can see how diverse the beers are as the countries themselves. I’m not sure how complete or accurate the map is. This map collected data based on various sources, from research reports to corporate filings from over 100 countries, taking into account the market share.

90,000 TOP-10: the most popular beer in the world

To quote a well-known contemporary thinker, Homer Simpson: “Let’s drink to alcohol – the cause and solution to all our problems!” Probably, many inhabitants of our planet agree with him, which allows some beer brands to enjoy immense popularity. This article will tell you about 10 popular brands of beer that have earned popular love in this or that part of our planet, as well as some interesting facts associated with these brands.

Map of the most popular brands of beer in different countries

To view the map in high resolution, open the picture in a new tab and save it to your PC. As you can see, in Ukraine the victory was won by Chernigovskoe, which managed to bypass Obolon quite a bit. And on this stunning note, I propose to move on to something more interesting.


Most common beer


10. China. Snow: not tasty, but popular

No intrigue – we will rip off the veils of mystery at the very beginning of the article.Snow is the most popular beer in the world. And if you’ve never heard of it, this is not surprising, because Snow Beer is only sold in China. In this country, it accounts for 84% of all sales – despite the fact that its manufacturer almost does not spend on advertising.

Yes, the world’s best-selling beer is only available in one limited market and with minimal advertising. It is so rarely shipped overseas that it is not easy to get it even in Hong Kong. But don’t worry that you are missing out on something important – according to CNN, the taste of this drink can be described as “bitter, superficial and unattractive.”And is this the most popular beer in the world? At this point, I should start to be smart about the power of advertising, but since Snow is hardly advertised, I simply have no words.


9. USA. Bud Light Creates Generation BuzzFeed

Anheuser-Busch, the creator of the popular Budweiser beer, has in recent years focused on a lighter, lower calorie beer, Bud Light. Due to wide advertising support, this beer is widely distributed in the USA. Anheuser-Busch is one of the few who follow the latest fashion trends, trying to win over a youth audience.As a result, they have a huge army of consumers in their early twenties who are obsessed with parties, selfies, fashion trends and do not really listen to what the older generation is pestering about there.

Traditionally, Anheuser-Busch has paid more attention to PR campaigns and promotional parties for young people than caring for the quality of their products. These parties last the whole weekend and bring together thousands of young guys from all over the country – a kind of beer open-air.

Producers of Bud Light do not hide their plans: they say they expect to attract at least 50% of young people aged 21 to 27 years.For this, the company already has a youth portal Buzzfeed.com . Bud Light marketers are so cynical that they openly declare predictability and ease of manipulation by the younger generation. They are confident that all these loud parties, PR actions and flirting with young people will win their loyalty. Sadly, this is true so far – the growing popularity of Bud Light and BuzzFeed confirms this.


8. Mexico. Corona with lime flavor

Corona is the most consumed beer in Mexico.And the most consumed beer of the movie “Fast and Furious”. This brand is in great demand in the USA, UK and other countries. Abroad, “Corona” is often drunk with a slice of lime, which causes the boundless surprise of the Mexicans themselves.

In fact, it is incomprehensible why it is customary to decorate the Crown with lime everywhere – in its homeland in Mexico, no one has ever done anything like this. There is a popular theory that such a custom was introduced by a bartender in New York at a beer show in 1981, but there is no confirmation of this story.The brewers themselves do not provide any comments on what to do with lime and where the legs of this whole story grow from. Maybe they have some kind of secret agreement with Mexican lime farmers? Or they just don’t check their email.


7. Singapore. Tiger: Time for the Tiger!

Tiger is the most popular beer in Singapore and Malaysia. And at the same time it is proof that Western companies should learn to choose names for beer.When will there be an opportunity to try a beer called “Tiger”, who will choose “Kozel”, “Rogan” or something similar?

Since the 1930s, Tiger has been using the advertising slogan “Time for the Tiger!” (“Time for a Tiger”) – even soulless employees of an advertising agency could understand that such a slogan would never get tired of listening. English writer Anthony Burgess for the time being agreed with this – he used this slogan for the title of one of his novels in 1956.

Burgess later revealed that he chose this slogan only because he wanted a free watch from Tiger.When he told the company that he was ready to give them a bunch of free advertising if they sent him a watch, they reasonably asked if they could first see a copy of the novel. Offended by this mistrust, Burgess hastily added the line that Tiger sucks and Carlsberg is better. And by the way, Carlsberg appreciated this gesture and sent the writer a box of their beer.

And Burgess continued to mock Tiger, sometimes texting with the company and acting like a resentful child. However, when Anthony visited Singapore in the 70s, the Tiger leadership decided to bury the hatchet by offering the writer to supply him with free beer during his stay in the country.Burgess heroically refused such an offer and did not back down – sometimes you have to sacrifice something in order to continue to remain an amazing jerk.


6. Russia. Is Baltika better than Coca-Cola?

I myself was suspicious of advertising claims that Baltika was the most exported beer in Russia. But it turned out that this is indeed the case. And an interesting fact lies in some oddities of Russian legislation: until 2013, only those products in which the alcohol content was higher than 10% were considered an alcoholic drink.

That is, until 2013, beer officially had the status of an ordinary soft drink. Considering the hackneyed theme of the relationship between Russians and alcohol, this fact gave rise to various jokes on the vastness of foreign Internet: they say, Russians are so harsh that their most popular soft drink is beer! Technically, that was until 2013.


5. Jamaica. Red Stripe: American in the Hot Sun of Jamaica

When you ask marketers what Red Stripe is, they say it’s a traditional Jamaican lager with a rich history.Red Stripe was first brewed in Illinois in the early 20th century. It was later bought out by two British guys to sell it to soldiers stationed in Jamaica. And when Red Stripe gained popularity on the island, it was shipped back to the United States as an exotic foreign drink brewed among the hot sands of a tropical island – another example of good marketing.

It is noteworthy that at first the export of this beer to the United States was not successful – the first batches were supplied in green bottles, and not in the brown ones that are common in Jamaica.But it was worth changing the color of the bottle to “Jamaican”, and things went more fun. A funnier case occurred in 1989, when all supplies of Red Stripe were suspended – cannabis was found in all shipments. I wouldn’t be surprised if this was done on purpose to finally convince Americans that Red Stripe is a real Rastafarian beer from Jamaica.


4. Brazil. Skol: Tram Killing Super Beer

Skol is the most popular beer in Brazil. True, its popularity abroad is relative.For example, in Britain it was dubbed “the killer beer.” The point is that although strong beer is nothing new, usually stronger beer is sold as a premium variety at a higher price. Only with Skol beer it was different: the “fortified” version of Skol wore the proud Super prefix and was sold for a pound a can. Despite the fact that the alcohol content in Super-Beer was not much less than in a bottle of wine.

As a result, the beer proved to be extremely popular among the vagabonds of Great Britain, so that it was jokingly dubbed “Juice for the Tramps”.True, the government was not in the mood for jokes – the mortality rate among the homeless, who consume alcohol excessively, began to increase. Therefore, some changes were made to the legislation aimed at ensuring that strong beer does not cost less than milk. Proponents of the law argue that more homeless people have died from the abuse of cheap strong beer than from heroin and cocaine … But is that really a problem? The problem is when, until 2013, the beer that killed British vagrants could be sold in our country on a par with Coca-Cola.


3. Japan. Unique architecture from Asahi

All this talk about the death of the homeless is depressing. Therefore, to cheer up, let’s talk about the most popular beer in Japan, Asahi. More precisely, let’s talk about the new building that this brewery has built.

This is the Beer Hall. It was supposed to remind the townspeople of a frothy glass of beer – satisfied customers could taste new varieties of their favorite drink there … But the residents of Tokyo and guests of the capital did not appreciate the greatness of the building, discussing what kind of monument was erected on its roof – a huge sperm or a golden cocoa? And everything would be fine if the Asahi headquarters were not located next to this Beer Hall.Now, if someone needs to visit the company that makes the country’s best-selling beer, they have to go to a building called “The Poo Building”. However, as you can see, this does not harm sales.


2. North Korea. Taedonggang Better Than South

While the name Taedonggang sounds like a new character from a computer-based fighting game, it is actually North Korea’s most popular beer. And, according to a few guys who managed to taste it, it really isn’t bad.Given the dire state of North Korea’s infrastructure, competing with other domestic brewers is not a problem at all.

As you would expect from a country that cannot have the same name as a “people’s” leader, Taedonggang exists only because Kim Jong Il wanted to prove his greatness. At a summit in Pyongyang in 2000, the late North Korean leader argued with some South Korean official about the quality of DPRK’s beer. Kim Jong Il, outraged by the idea that southerners drink tastier beer, bought an entire UK brewery and made sure it was transported to North Korea.He was so carried away by the promotion of this beer that he even allowed it to be advertised on ideologically correct state television.

And it worked! Not only is Taedonggang the most popular beer in North Korea, some experts have agreed that it is better than any beer in South Korea. True, despite this, no one wants to live in the DPRK anyway.


1. Irish Guinness: Toucans and Nazis

Guinness planned an extensive advertising campaign during the Olympic Games in Nazi Germany in 1936.But their London branch stopped the Irish branch in time, dissuading them from collaborating with the Nazis. However, there are some of the funniest flyers and posters that were meant for German bars.

The funny thing is that all the same posters with toucans, slightly altering the background, were used by Guinness in an advertising campaign in the USA. True, after seeing these birds against the background of a swastika, they are not perceived so cheerfully and cause obsessive associations with bombers from the Second World War.

Don’t be a snob … Repost!

It’s no secret that beer is the oldest and one of the most popular alcoholic drinks in the world.There are many varieties, brands and brands that produce this drink and it can be quite difficult to make a choice. Here are the top 10 most popular beer brands according to several independent marketing studies.

Carlsberg. The Danish brewing company, whose name has become a brand, has long and simply gained popularity on the Russian market. The Russians will be interested in learning that Carlsberg beer has been brewed for Russians since 2008 under the appropriate license at the breweries of the Baltika brewing concern.

Foster’s. Australian stamp. Despite the fact that in their homeland Fosters prefer the dark Victoria Bitter beer, this beer is one of the most popular around the world. Light varieties are in particular demand. Foster’s beer is sold in all major hypermarkets. True, it is not cheap, but, believe me, this is not wasted money at all.

Asahi. The most popular beer of the Land of the Rising Sun, gradually replacing traditional sake from the life of modern Japanese.However, Asashi is more than successfully sold in foreign markets, both in cans and bottles through retail chains, and in bottling in Japanese restaurants that are gaining popularity in Russia.

Urquell is a beer that is rightfully considered the pride of the Czech Republic – a brewing country that is distinguished not only by beer traditions dating back centuries, but also by the leader in beer consumption among the population. However, unfortunately, it is not so easy to find beer of this brand in Russia.

Stella Artois is the world’s best-selling Belgian beer brand owned by AB InBev, the world’s largest.Like Foster’s, it is not a leader at home, occupying only eight percent of the total consumption, but very popular outside Belgium.

Guinness is the most popular and famous dark beer in the world. And it’s worth it. Guinness accounts for a good half of the beer market in Ireland, beer is exported to all countries of the world and is considered healing – the Irish believe that this drink strengthens health, gives strength and even improves skin condition.

Heineken. Dutch brewers have made us happy with this undoubtedly popular beer brand. Heineken is popular everywhere – from Russia to Latin America. This is a brand that successfully combines excellent taste and aroma characteristics with a more than affordable price.

Krombacher. Germany’s favorite beer brand. Krombacher is the sales leader in the brewing region of Bavaria. The whole world rightfully pays tribute to this brand, especially its light varieties. The choice of millions of German foam fans around the world.

Corona. A Mexican brand that is very popular in the United States, but Corona sells well in international markets as well. Although this brand is not particularly popular in Russia.

Budweiser. The most popular beer brand in the United States and occupies about twenty percent of the American beer market, but with great success it is sold in foreign markets. However, in Russia, the American Budweiser is much less popular than the Czech Budweiser Budvar.

What is beer

Beer is divided into types depending on ingredients, production method, origin, taste, etc.Most often, beer is distinguished by the type of fermentation:

  • ale is a top-fermented beer with yeast . Wheat beers Witbier, Dubbel, Tripel, Indian Pale Ale, Kölsch, English Bitters, Porter and Stout are all ale styles of beer. Brewers argue to the point of hoarseness about how porter differs from stout. They agree only on the fact that porters are usually more drinkable, with chocolate notes, and stouts are more full-bodied, complex, with a burnt coffee aftertaste. Now that craft breweries are experimenting with different types of malt, the distinction between porter and stout has completely disappeared;
  • lager – bottom-fermented beer with yeast .Lagers include black beer, pilsner, bock, Export Dortmunder, European amber lager, Munchner Helles, Kellerbier and others;
  • Spontaneously fermented beer is fermented using natural wild yeast and bacteria. This method is used mainly in West Flanders – for example, the Belgian lambic is made.

The whole Czech history is steeped in beer: the Celts began to brew it in the local area, and the first uniform brewery appeared in Brno in the 12th century.The profession of a sweet brew in the Czech Republic is still very prestigious, and almost every self-respecting village has its own kind of foam.

A real high point for Czech beer was 1842, when the Bavarian brewer Josef Groll brewed a new type of beer in Pilsen. At first “Pilsner” turned the head of the whole Europe, after 30 years it reached the USA, and now it has already conquered the whole world.

“Barley juice” was tasted in German lands as early as the 8th century: an ancient charter on the delivery of beer from Geisingen to St. Gallen’s Abbey in 766 has been preserved.Seven centuries later, the Bavarian Duke Wilhelm IV issued the Beer Purity Law: Reinheitsgebot prescribes only four ingredients for beer production: water, barley malt, hops and yeast. The attitude to beer among the Germans is still sacred: many famous brands of beer are named after monastic orders – for example, the Munich Weissbier Franciskaner.

Berliner Weisse is brewed in Berlin: raspberry syrup gives this variety a special sour taste. In southern Germany, the wheat beer Weizbeer or Weissbier is especially popular, while in Düsseldorf and in the towns along the lower Rhine, dark altbier, or simply alt, is popular.In Cologne, a light, bitter Kölsch is preferred, and in the mountainous regions of Thuringia, the “Green Heart of Germany”, the black Schwarzbier beer was born, which is now brewed throughout the country. Other German beers worth trying are Smoked Rauchbier, Strong Bock, Munich Pale Lager Helles and March Märzen, which is bottom-fermented with yeast exclusively in early spring until 23 April.

Belgian brewing traditions originated in the Middle Ages: water in those days was unfit for drinking, it was much safer to drink food with weak table beer – even children and monks, who became the first brewers in Belgium, did this.At first, Trappist beer was prepared exclusively for members of the order, and the first case of the sale of a monastic foamy drink to laymen was recorded only in 1861.

The most popular Belgian beers are blanche white wheat beer, naturally fermented wheat and barley lambic and cherry creek. Belgian Trappist monks have long brewed a special version of the dense strong ale under the general name Trappiste. Even in Belgium, abbey beer is made – this is a broader concept than Trappist: such drinks, as a rule, have monastic roots, but now they are produced without the participation of monks.An example of abbey beer is Leffe.

Belgian Trappist Beer Brands:

  • Achel, Achel – Abbey of Saint Benedict (Achelse Kluis), Hamont-Achel, Limburg province
  • Chimet, Chimay – Abbey of Notre Dame de Scourmont, Chimet, Hainaut

Historically, the legendary Guinness beer was a porter: it was drunk by dock workers because it revitalized itself after hard work.Later, the Arthur Guinness Son & Co company singled out the stout into a special kind of porter – this is how the modern Guinness Original and Guinness Extra Stout appeared.

In addition to Guinness, Ireland loves the soft, dark Beamish stout that has been brewed for over two hundred years at the Beamish & Crawford brewery in County Cork, Harp’s light lager, Murphy’s sweet stout and Irish red ale.

The British are big lovers of good old ale.Moreover, they often prefer draft draft beer to bottled beer – something that matures to the correct condition not in the brewery, but in the cellar of the local pub.

Bitters and Indian pale ale are loved in England. Indian Pale Ale, or IPA for short, was invented by the talented brewer George Hodgson in the late 18th century. He figured out how to relieve the melancholy of British soldiers and officials, who at that time settled in colonized India and missed their native beer. The usual pale ale could not stand the test of the great distance – it came sour.Then Hodgson decided to add more hops to the drink: the strong “Indian” pale ale made it to India at its best. The fresh and vibrant flavor of the IPA is so beloved by the British that it remains one of the most traditional English beer styles to this day.

The oldest Dutch brewery Brand Bierbrouwerij has been known since the 14th century.In 1971, he became the official supplier of the Royal Court of the Netherlands – along with this honorary title, the brewery bought the Heineken concern a few years later, which today needs no introduction.

In addition to the Heineken lager, which has a museum in Amsterdam and an entire temple in Thailand, the Dutch are proud of the beer brands Amstel, Grolsch and the Trappist beer La Trappe. And do not let the name of the brand “Bavaria” confuse you: a Dutch family named Swinkels has owned this brewery in North Brabant since 1773.

Scotland is associated with whiskey rather than beer. And in vain: ales here also know how to make and are worth their weight in gold since the days of Caledonia. In the old days, Scottish beer was brewed with juniper, anise, heather and yarrow – the taste turned out to be herbal and similar to that which was common in Western Europe, until hops were added to the drink.Now in Scotland, beer is brewed for any connoisseur: the most famous varieties are at the Caledonian Brewery in Edinburgh, BrewDog near Aberdeen, Belhaven in Dunbar, Broghton in Broughton and other breweries.

Scottish brewing companies still use the old shilling system. The number with a slash on the label used to mean the price of a pint, depending on the strength of the drink: for 60 shillings they sold light light 60 / -, for 70 – heavy heavy 70 / -, for 80 – export export 80 / -, and for 90 shillings – the most strong wee heavy 90 / -, or strong scotch ale, which should be drunk in small sips.

In 2019, in the town of Ellon, 26 km from Aberdeen, a portal to the “beer nirvana” – the Doghouse craft beer hotel, will be opened. The hotel with 26 rooms is being built right on the territory of the multinational brewery BrewDog, in each room they promise taps with Punk IPA pale ale, and in the bathrooms – refrigerators with ice beer.

90,000 Mexican beer

Mexico is the third largest beer producer in America after the United States and Canada.
In the 16th century, more precisely in 1544, in North America, the Spanish conquistador Alonso de Harera was the first to introduce the technique of brewing beer from sunburned barley.Later, Mexican brewers created their own distinct style and taste. An important role in this process was played by the Gruppo Modelo company, having founded its La Cerveseria Modelo plant in Mexico City in 1925. For decades, the company’s flagship beer, Corona Extra, has been Mexico’s # 1 beer and is one of the five best-selling beers in the world. More than 2 billion liters of Corona Extra are sold annually in more than 150 countries around the world. Compared to other Mexican beers, Corona Extra is the most popular Mexican beer in the world (Grupo Modelo has over 83% of the exported Mexican beer market).Moreover, Corona Extra is the most famous brand of all products, goods and services produced in Mexico.

By the way: What does the griffin stand for on the Corona Extra beer label? The griffin is a mythical animal with the body of a lion, wings and the head of an eagle. According to legend, when the lion, the king of beasts, tasted the Mexican Corona Extra beer for the first time, he was so inspired by the amazing taste of this drink that wings grew behind him. Moreover, without any doubt, the lion changed his crown (symbolizing the royal position among the animals) for the opportunity to enjoy this amazing beer day and night.Since then, the beer has been named Corona (crown), and the lion drinking Corona beer, the griffin. However, the first brewery was built in Mexico City back in 1845 by the Swiss émigré Bernhard Bolgard.

Almost all traditional Latin American beers are brewed with cassava or tapioca. Cassava is a special herb, bushes or trees, from the tubers of which tapioca is made – a cereal similar to rice. The traditional beer of Latin America is a corn beer called “Chiha”. Another special beer is the so-called Black beer, which was previously brewed in the Amazon Delta from roasted barley and corn, and flavored with lupines.There is now a black beer called Xingu, which is very popular, especially around Boston.

Unlike most Latin American countries, where the brewing industry is based on small, scattered breweries, Mexico has a clear structure. The Mexican brewing industry is based on three concerns and 12 breweries. Mexican brewing gained fame abroad, mainly thanks to the thirst-quenching Corona beer.Served in clear bottles with a slice of lemon, this beer has become a must for all Mexican-style restaurants in the United States.

Concern “Montezuma” produces “Sol”, which is close to light German beers; “Dos Equis”, which has a beautiful golden amber color; “Tecata”, which is drunk with salt and lemon; “Superior” is a fairly light and very beloved beer in Mexico; “Carta Blanca” is one of the oldest varieties in the country.

Beer in Latin America is usually sold in bottles of 60 cubic meters.see Jar with a volume of 33 cubic meters. see is considered a better bottle and is more expensive. For the production of beer, in addition to barley, corn is still used. But the production equipment does not allow corn to affect the flavor of the beer. In addition to the above, the most famous brands of beer are: “Indio”, “Victoria”, “Montesuma”, “Bavaria”, “Monterrey”, “Pacifico”, “Simpatico”.

Simpatico is a relatively young beer that appeared on the American market in 1987 and quickly made it to the top of the most popular drinks.However, in the mid-90s, beer disappeared for no apparent reason. Now this beer is being produced again, but it can no longer boast of large capacities, we are talking only about 150 thousand boxes. In addition, Simpatico is the first beer to be bottled in black glass, not just colored.

“The lips of a perfectly happy man are filled with beer”
(Ancient Egyptian wisdom)

Each of us at least once heard about craft beer and its many varieties and varieties.This article is for those who have not only heard, but also truly love this drink! He loves so much that he sincerely wants to learn something new and understand all the nuances of craft bottled beer.

Interestingly, the brewing industry does not stand still. New varieties appear and sometimes even old ones change. How not to get confused in all this diversity? And how do you know which strain is best for you? We will talk about this in this article!

Let’s start with the main thing – we will dispel one of the most popular myths.Contrary to the opinion of the overwhelming majority, bottled beer is not divided into dark and light. There are only two main varieties, in terms of the brewing process – top-fermented beer, the so-called ale, and bottom-fermented lager.

Ale is the most ancient style of beer that first appeared in Ancient Egypt. In the modern world, Ale is widely used in Britain, although it is consumed all over the world. The most famous varieties of this beer are Porter and Stout.The ale got its name, namely top-fermented beer, because of the yeast. The fact is that in the process of fermentation, the yeast forms long chains among themselves and thus rises to the top. Such beer ferments at temperatures from 15 degrees. Distinguishing ale from lager is quite simple, as the former has a very intense flavor.

The second main type of beer is lager. It got its name, namely, a bottom-fermented drink, thanks again to its yeast, which remains at the bottom during its preparation.For this reason, lagers have a stronger beer flavor than ales. The fermentation process takes place at temperatures from 5 to 15 degrees, in rare cases it can drop to 0 degrees. Lager is the most popular bottled beer in the world. His homeland, historically, is Germany. The most popular varieties are Pilsner and Bock.

It’s time to refute the second myth – if the strength of a drink is above 10%, it cannot be considered beer. The amount of alcohol is influenced by the fermentation method and various technological processes.For example: to increase the fortress, the world famous eisbok is frozen, thereby removing excess water. Bottled beer can be strong!

There is also a hybrid beer. It is obtained by mixing bottom and top fermentation technologies.
