In May, we asked “What is the World’s Best Beer?” Well after a month of survey responses from users, like you, we were able to get together our first pass of data. Some of the results we got were expected, while others may surprise you.

A little more about the survey - the survey was collected from Beer Universe users across the US and from several international countries. We provided the categories through the Beer Universe database for the various types of beers around the world. The only categories that limited the choice of a user was our light beer, which only listed: Sam Adams Light, Amstel Light, Coors Light, Bud Light, Miller Lite, and Bud Select.
