The Most Popular Beers in Different Countries Around the World

Beer is most popular alcoholic beverage in the world and the third most widely consumed drink, following water and tea. (We’re quite pleased to hear that the world is drinking more water than beer.)

Of course, over the past decade there’s been a significant influence of craft beers and craft breweries around the world. While this list is showing the most popular macro beers in the world, we’re sure that there are craft beers that are quite popular around the world too!
