    Interesting article discussing which beers Americans prefer, state by state. The map below shows more discerning tastes on the coasts than up the middle:

    Bud Light? Really, Texas?

    I'd be surprised if Bud Light has more than 15 percent of the market. There are a lot of great beer choices these days. I never buy Bud Light. I do buy Blue Moon, but not sure I like it better than Sam Adams, Kirin or Stella Atois. Funny, I love Stella on tap in a restaurant, but from a bottle it's no better than the other Belgian beers.

    I like Blue Moon and Sam but not Bud Light. Did you notice only Oklahoma and Indiana prefer Coors Light? I thought that was interesting.

    With respondents being given 18 choices, I am betting that many just chose what they see on television...you have to figure that a lot of really good regional/craft brews were NOT on the list and even if some wrote them in, it was not going to be enough to displace domestic swill...

    I prefer Dos XX with a good squeeze of lime, or just a Michelob Ultra. Easy to please! :)

    Corona with lime. I don't even drink beer, this is as close as I get.

    Juengling in Tenn? I don't think so.

    Maybe not in Nashville, but I know I've seen it in the more "Appalachian" places like Chattanooga and up I-75 and I-81. The whole Appalachian Trail's favorite beer is probably Yuengling.

    Sorry to those of you that drink Corona, but damn, that's a bad beer.

    If they used market share - I believe Bud light would be number 1 in all states except, Illinois, Colorado and Wisconsin
