Domestic Beers Rule, BUD Is The Favorite
Perhaps Budweiser really is the "King of Beers." The brand is leading the list of favorite beers in a new Rasmussen Reports poll, with 25-percent saying Bud is their beer or choice. Miller takes second place as the favorite of 19-percent. Sam Adams trails in third place, with seven-percent of those polled saying it's the brand of beer they prefer. Fewer than five-percent of respondents are big fans of Coors, Heineken, Corona, Pabst, or Guinness. Americans have a decided preference for domestic brews. Nearly 70-percent say they like American beers better than imports, while 22-percent have a preference for the foreign flavors. But when it comes to picking a regular or a light beer, the public is split. While 49-percent favor light beers, 46-percent want a regular. Most beer drinkers stay in to enjoy the beverage. While 38-percent say they'll go out to a bar or restaurant for a beer, 51-percent are more likely to crack open a can at home.
