You're better off not knowing what they're drinking.

I am not a beer snob. I have never been a beer snob. As long as I'm perpetually broke and there are $4 six-packs of Hamm's tallboys at the corner store, I probably never will be a beer snob. But that doesn't mean that I don't know the difference between a good beer and a not-so-good* beer.


And just because I love my country, it doesn't mean I can't get a little bit bummed out by what my fellow citizens prefer to pour into their faces. This list of the most popular beers in America comes to us from VinePair (which also created this map of how America would be divided if it was split up by what each region drinks), and it is as depressing as it is utterly predictable::

Kind of interesting that Yuengling Lager made it onto this list. Unlike the other 19 beers that I will drink**, it's a beer that I actually will happily drink. Though, now that I think about it, I'm not sure if it's actually a good beer, or if I'm just comfortable with it because in the Philly area where I grew up it comes out of the faucets instead of wooder***.
