Top 10 Best Beer Brands

The Top Ten
1 Budweiser

When I turned 21, I explored all sorts of beers, and I do enjoy a variety of brands and styles. However, I always come back around to Budweiser... It is hands down my favorite. It's just very tasty to me... It even has a little sweet kick to it. And, sorry beer snobs, Bud's all-natural beechwood-aged brewing process and recipe have not changed since it was introduced in 1876. No chemicals! Look it up. Additionally, I actually prefer it in a can!

I like to smell it before I drink because it makes me feel like I am in heaven. Parties are incomplete without Budweiser. It feels complete and refreshing when it touches the belly. It takes me to the empire state of mind... I would prefer Budweiser at any life event. Budweiser really deserves to be dubbed as the 'KING OF BEERS'...

Budweiser is the best ever. I love it. It's just fresh and refreshing, the greatest combination of all ingredients I have ever tasted. They make it with a very secret and magic recipe. Once you've tasted it, you'll never forget, unless you don't have a good palate for God's nectar. Bud or Budweiser, "10/10".

2 Heineken

I used to drink Budweiser every day. I've tried every beer on this list. Each one is good in its own unique way, tailored to fit different tastes. However, none of them hold a candle to Heineken, except when it comes to being more affordable. You can drink Heineken all day long. In fact, you can consume a large amount and still achieve that perfect beer buzz everyone desires. The company puts a lot of time and effort into producing their beer. They're the real deal.

Now, I understand that many of you beer enthusiasts may not heed this advice. But consider this: you can continue to drink your preferred beer, supporting a company that's already making millions. You can remain stuck in your ways, refusing to branch out. I've regularly sampled every beer on this list. They're all good beers. Saying that there's a bad beer is like claiming there's bad vodka. All vodka is good. It's still vodka. And it's not just about the price tag. Yes, Heineken is expensive, but is it worth it? Absolutely.

You can enjoy Heineken at a bar, even though the bottles may sometimes look worn. It even tastes good in cans. Some women initially avoid it because they grew up drinking milder beers, but Heineken doesn't cause hangovers. I've been a beer drinker for a long time and can easily identify someone who truly appreciates a particular brand. Check out the reviews for Mickey's or Budweiser. Those reviewers have been fed those beers their entire lives. They don't know anything else.

I'm not here to overly promote Heineken. I have no particular loyalty to it. All I'm saying is that, compared to every other beer on this list, it's the best. Why waste time on lesser beers when you already know which one tops the list? I challenge you to find a Heineken drinker who behaves erratically while drinking it. It's almost impossible, unlike with Budweiser, which seems to be the king of hangovers and DUIs.

I won't take up any more of your valuable time. If you're looking for... more

3 Corona Extra

It's the best beer in the world! No one can say that it's not because it's Italian! Italy is the best place on earth where the most good things are made. I want to remind all those who think badly about Italy that this country has done more than all the others put together. You just have to see all the inventions that Italian people have made!

There is a reason one puts a lime into this brew - it tastes awful without the lime. When you have to put a lime in the beer to drink it - that tells you everything about the beer. They should take some of the money they use on marketing and try to improve the quality of the beer.

Best beer ever! It's the only beer I drink... Nothing like a nice chilling Corona on a very hot summer day... Or even just chilling on your couch with a Corona by your side... Oh, and don't forget the wedge of lemon..

4 Carlsberg

This is by far the most excellent beer made. Its taste is so smooth, you have to be careful not to drink it too fast, or you'll find yourself half drunk by surprise. I don't understand people who like the American domestic beers that are fast-brewed and harsh. Especially, light beers really suck.

Should be in the top five. When I was in Prague, I drank Carlsberg the whole time I was there. It tasted great, and it was nice to sit and shoot the breeze with the locals. Love it!

Brilliant beer, always. Beats Bud, Corona, Heineken - all of them! Perfect for summer parties!

5 Guinness

I'm not much of a drinker, mainly due to the fact that most alcoholic drinks repulse me. So, to say that I've developed a taste for Guinness says something. It says that there's something special about this stuff. It's smooth, it's frothy, it's rich, and it's a taste that reminds me of the greatest vacation I ever took (that's Ireland, kids).

I was actually fortunate enough to have my first-ever drink of Guinness in the Temple Bar district of Dublin, fewer than a mile away from the brewery. It's good stuff, guys. When you're old enough to try it, try it.

My goodness, my Guinness! You're not a man until you drink it! Surely the best drink money can buy! Guinness is the best! Cheers to Guinness from Dublin! Guinness at its best.

If you can't drink a Guinness Draught, then you're just a little boy drinking 4/5 water-beer. Guinness Draught gives you the perfect head every time :-) These guys from Dublin are the real deal.

If you can only drink a light beer, at least leave Bud Light out of the question. It's nothing but a huge marketing gimmick. Every blind taste test I have seen between light beers, Miller Light wins as the overall favorite every time. Budweiser is good, but Bud Light is nothing but water. You can almost watch TV looking through a glass of it. Try doing that with a Guinness.

6 Sam Adams

I have never drank one of any flavor. It’s American-made... so, I voted for it. It has to be stronger tasting than Coors, which I like. It looks about as strong as Michelob, which I like, and Miller High Life Dark, which I also like.

I drank a dozen Busch lights on the weekends and finally gave up the low-quality beer. I tried Sam Adams Cherry Wheat and Maple Pecan - 1 per evening. Never going back again. Excellent beer... I guess I finally grew up.

With a meal, Boston Lager is the best beer in the world. If you are drinking and not eating, Guinness might be as good. But, for all-around greatness, Sam Adams Boston Lager cannot be beat.

7 Efes Pilsen

If you like good Pilsner, then this is the beer for you! Have it cold, and have it often. Turkish beer quality is always good, from your first beer to the last beer. I also find that this beer does not give me indigestion, which I get from other Pilsner-like beers. Enjoy and share.

I first drank this fantastic beer in Turkey back in 1982. I loved the fact that its alcohol content was not controlled. You could have one beer that was like water and another that after would knock you on your posterior. It was great.

It is sad to see the best beer brand at 2nd place. It obviously deserves the first place. There is only one probability not to like Efes Pilsen, and it's simple, "You never tasted it before," wink.

8 Stella Artois

Really? Some of the 13 that are ranked higher than this aren't worth a top 10.
Belgium is known as the country of beer.
Do the test: First drink Heineken, then Corona, then Budweiser, and then drink Stella Artois. You will ask yourself why you wasted money on the previous three "beers."

Definitely in the top 5 of the world. Taste is very subjective, but Stella is liked by a very large number of people, unlike some specialty beers which are liked by a few.

Bud is 1st and Stella Artois 18th... The one we drink in Belgium is different than the pint of Stella you will drink in the UK. The Belgian one is definitely the best "pils/lager" you can find (along with Jupiler).

9 Yuengling

THIS should be at the top.

Bud is all hype. It's a perfect example of spending millions in advertising to buy popularity with an inferior product.

Heineken in North America is subpar, but I give the original a solid top 5.

Any Corona equals more hype, and I challenge anyone "loving" this beer to leave it out overnight and take a sniff. It smells like it was brewed in a sewage treatment plant. That's why you need a lime to drink it.

Guinness? Try 'Black Wych' from Wychwood. Unlike Guinness, it's a great dark stout without the bitter tones. Far superior!

Coors of any style is even more hype. There was a mystique in the east (US) when you could not get this beer. "Rocky Mountain water," my ass. They wanted a brewery in Asheville, N.C., but the city wouldn't cut them a break on their water usage.

Sam Adams is a very good, simple, clean lager. Just not quite as good as Yuengling, in my opinion.

Don't be sheeple!

Yuengling… From a woman who drank pale beers for almost 30 years... Absolutely the best. I started with Lager, then moved to Black and Tan, now I purchase Porter whenever I can find it. Wonderful flavor. Smooth. Simply the best beer I have ever had the pleasure to drink. Once you switch to Yuengling, the others taste like horse pee!

10 San Miguel Pale Pilsen

San Miguel Pale Pilsen is so good that you can drink a lot of it, cases after cases. The taste and texture are the same bottle after bottle. The taste will not become unpleasant on the 2nd, 3rd, ...bottles like with other beers. It is a very consistent beer. You will get buzzed immediately right on the first bottle. So, eat a lot of food before drinking and eat during drinking because you will be drinking San Miguel for a lifetime.

Tasty, refreshing, satisfying, and stimulating beer. It cools your body, and San Miguel beers always give you a very good buzz, especially in the tropical heat and humidity of the Philippines, Southeast Asia, and other places around the world. This beer is excellent for enjoying life, hanging out with family, relatives, and friends, and even for taking a nap or sleeping. It also pairs very well with food.

I can think of a lot of beers that should be on this list. But when I see Budweiser at the top, I realize that the people voting on this topic know absolutely nothing about good beer. Budweiser is about as poor a beer as it comes.

San Miguel is great for the flavor and the price.

The Contenders
11 Kronenbourg 1664

Wow... The best refreshing beer after BECKs. This French beer has its own style of brewing from the year 1664...

A really fresh beer that has the typical bitterness and flavor characteristic of Alsatian beers. The main brand is Kronenbourg 1664, named after its date of foundation, and it's a 5.0% ABV pale lager.

Best beer I have ever had the pleasure of drinking.

12 Coors Light

Coors Light is a light beer produced by the Coors Brewing Company. It was first produced in 1978.
The beer has a "Cold Certified" label which turns the mountains on the label from white to blue when the beer's temperature is lowered to 4 degrees Celsius.

Coors Light is a drink that reaches into your brain and triggers any orgasmic hormones you have to unleash. Coors Light and Connor Harris are just like Romeo and Juliet. They just love each other.

This beer has no taste whatsoever. If you like plain, watery beer then look no further. It's funny how Coors always advertise their new "hi-tech" can design since the beer itself is less than okay.

13 Heady Topper

So far, I have 3500 labels under my belt. Heady Topper kicks them right in the can! The cans are coated inside. You won't find it online or in a store. You must go to VT to get it. I'm on Long Island, and some bars go to get it. Best IPA, and once you try it, you will understand!

Very good beer, love it.

14 Kingfisher Premium Lager

The great Indian beer... A perfect blend of taste and power. Just try once, and you will fall in love with it. Beer of Indians. Don't dare.

KF beer is really premium for all categories to compare with... Having a perfect 5.5% V/v. The taste, color, and blend are perfect compared to any European beers, which are very mild or strong, mind-hitting ones, especially Asian ones which you cannot gulp more than 3. KF can be enjoyed all night - unlimited, at least 8 for sure. Cheers, thanks VB. Shail.

Kingfisher is one of the best beers I have ever drunk... The great Indian beer... A perfect blend of taste and power. Just try once, and you will fall in love with it. Beer of Indians. Don't dare.

15 Becks

Smooth as hell. A great choice when feeling fancy and want to get away from the Keystone.

In my opinion, the best beer on the market and even the world. Very nice taste.

Try Beck's Gold. It takes you to heaven.

16 Dogfish Head

Dogfish knows how to brew a real beer, not just an American light lager like almost every beer on the list. People should know that beer is more than what they're told to drink from advertising!

As a brewer from Delaware, I especially like his 22% beer. One is more alcohol than four Coors Lights.

Wow, what a snazzy beer! Just, every time I drink it my feet practically explode!

17 Miller Lite

Ever notice, for the most part, the only people that you see drinking Coors, Bud products, or any kind of beer that you have to put a piece of fruit in are either women, or men who want to be seen as beer drinkers? Very few of these people are seen with a Miller in their hand.

In my opinion, Miller Lite has a great taste, unlike the so-called #1 that has a watered-down flavor and has very little color compared to Miller Lite.

Miller Lite is the best of the domestic light beers. Best tasting. I work at Circle K and it sells way faster than all the other light domestic beers.

18 Old Hooky

When I drink Old Hooky beer... then I feel I'm the king of India... and all people are foolish.

19 Tyskie

This… words fail me, kick-ass stuff!
Poles should be proud because this is better than Budweiser, Corona, Fosters, Carling, Heineken, Kronenbourg, Carlsberg, and Tuborg. Tyskie Lager is the best beer in the world, especially after a hard day's graft. It's so refreshing from both the can or the bottle. It will grow ever bigger in the UK, Poland, Thailand, Canada, Brazil, Germany, Italy, South Africa, USA, Ireland, New Zealand, Australia, France, Netherlands, Czech Republic, Spain, Portugal, Belgium, Colombia, etc...

Very good beer from Poland.

20 Foster's

This beer is not liked where it comes from in Australia - yet the world seems to love it! Too weak for Aussies, but anything would be better than that crap they serve in America - it is like a glass of mineral water with a twist of light beer!

Come to Australia and drink the real stuff. Made in Melbourne using the best water in the world. All mountain filtered water. Boy, do I need one now.

You're crazy. Australians stopped drinking this when they changed it for the foreign market, and if you're in the US, your 'imports' are brewed in Canada.

21 Theakston

What can I say, Theakstons make ales that are rich, dark, and hoppy. These are beers. The insipid lagers that dominate this list are so different it would be fairer to have two lists: lagers and ales.

22 Mikkeller

Mikkeller beer is really tasty. We like to drink it and share it with friends.

23 Henry Weinhard's Private Reserve
24 Bell's Hopslam Ale

Huge IPA, a real celebration of hops in a bottle! I also love their "Oracle." Bell's has been brewing world-class beers for a long, long time, and this one is a real treasure.

25 Tuborg

I am a habitual drinker, but I drink only premium beers, and I love the taste of Tuborg. It's an awesome beer. I love how it feels on my tongue. There's no hangover in the morning, no headache, and no problems at all, not even a smell.

My favorite beer is Tuborg. Heineken is overrated and not as good. Tuborg is delicious and smooth. It takes the crown.

I love Denmark's Tuborg and Danish girls. The Tuborg tastes so great it's as if we are in heaven. Afterward, I just fall in love.
