A Colorful Infographic That Plots the Most Popular Beers in the United States Calculated by Annual Sales

Top 20 Beers in USA

VinePair (previously) has created “The 20 Most Popular Beers in America,” a colorful infographic that plots the United States’ “favorite” beers in order of popularity, as determined by annual sales.

Big Beer is a big business in America. Total annual sales stand around $100 billion. Craft Beers, as defined by the Brewer’s Association, are booming, yet still only account for around 15% of the beer sold in America. On a volume basis, craft beer’s share of the market is about half of that, due to its premium pricing. So what’s America drinking? A whole lot of light beer, most of which is made by a handful of monstrous macro brewers. America’s most popular beer is Bud Light – by a couple billion dollars. Yes, Bud Light’s U.S. sales alone would lodge it firmly within the Fortune 500.

‘The Companies Who Actually Make Your Beer’, A Helpful Infographic Revealing the Big Businesses Behind ‘Craft’ Beers

Comapnies Who Actually Make Your Beer

In light of the controversy stirred up by the Budweiser Super Bowl ad during which the company made clear their disdain for both craft beers and the people who drink them, Vine Pair has put together “The Companies Who Actually Make Your Beer”, a helpful infographic that reveals which big businesses (including Budweiser) are marketing beers that look like craft brews, but really aren’t.

After all of the controversy surrounding the Super Bowl anti-craft beer ad from Budweiser, we got to thinking, who actually owns a lot of the beers we all enjoy, so we did some digging. Much of who actually owns our beer is purposefully obscured, while other times it’s just lost in a sea of big business. …It’s also not a judgement of quality. Some of the beers on this map are great. Some aren’t. Either way, we believe you should drink what you like. We also believe you should know who made that beer though, which is why we created the map

Accommodating Bunny Uses a Custom-Made Cart to Deliver Beer to His Human Upon Request

Wallace, an adorably accommodating bunny, delivers a beer to his human upon request using a special cart that his human had made just for him. According to Wallace’s human, this feat has been in the making for some time.

This event marks the release of an epic accomplishment. I have been collaborating for the past year with my girlfriend’s pet rabbit to create performance art and “happenings” that capture this rabbit’s capabilities and worldly passions. In a million years, neither Wallace nor I would have guessed that our creative endeavors would take this route but after such a long journey we arrive at this significant moment.

There’s also some shaky behind-the-scenes footage of Wallace training for his big moment.

A Simple Way to Create a Safe Drinking Glass From a Beer Bottle With Just a Few Household Items

Household Hacker demonstrates a simple way to create a safe drinking class from a beer bottle using only some isopropyl alcohol, cold water, a lighter, and a bit of string. They also stress that this method can take a bit of time, so patience and safety are of the utmost importance.

Want to make your own customized glassware? It is easier than you think if you keep safety first (gloves and water source). Here are all the materials needed to turn your Corona bottle into fine glassware.

1 Bottle of Isopropyl Alcohol (Rubbing alcohol)
A good length of cotton string or yarn
1 Bucket of Water
1 Serving of patience

By tying the string around the bottle and igniting it we can weaken the bottle which will split it in two pieces when added to an ice bath. Remember to wear proper safety gear and have a fire extinguisher or water source near by.
