These days, beers come in countless variations. From alcohol level to the color of the brew, there’s a beer type for everyone. World Population Review recently published a report that details Florida’s most popular beer brand.
Florida has many homegrown craft breweries. In fact, five local beers are widely available Tampa Bay Rays games. Still, with all the hop creativity in the Sunshine State, Florida’s favorite beer brand choice is a brew from Belgium.
Stella Artois is the beer king of Florida. This is a pilsner that has 4.6 – 5.2% alcohol by volume. A Stella comes in their signature green bottle or in specially designed draft glass that is more of a vase shape.
In 2008, Stella Artois’ parent company and Anheuser-Busch merged. This created what is now known as Anheuser-Busch InBev. In 2021, Anheuser-Busch moved the production of Stella to the United States. It was then no longer an import. However, Stella is still produced in Belgium for distribution in Europe and other countries.
Other States’ Most Popular
It was a wide gap between Budweiser, claiming 23 states where their beer was the most popular, and the second place brew. Five states’ were aligned to Bud Light as their choice beverage. Miller Lite was third, claiming Indiana and New Jersey. Here’s a fun fact – “Stella” means star in Latin. There is a star logo on every Stella Artois beer product. The beer was a holiday gift to the people of Leuven, Belgium over 600 years ago.
As we head towards Memorial Day weekend and the outdoor concert season, it’s very likely you will see plenty of Florida’s most popular beer around.
