Americans love food (yeah, desserts!) and beer, not necessarily in that order nor separately! It is estimated that more than 99 million Americans regularly drink beer. Drinking-age Americans consuming a minimum of one beer a day makes beer America's top choice alcoholic drink over wine and hard liquor. Understand that's a estimate of those who are of 'drinking age'! That makes beer as American as the apple pie! The U.S. brewing industry is a dynamic part of our national economy contributing billions of dollars in wages and taxes.
As much as America loves its pie, pie, pie, especially apple pie, America also loves its beer!
Beer is not just 'beer'. There are different beer Types and Styles: types = ales, lagers, stouts & porters, malts and styles = amber, blonde, dark, golden, pale, light, as well as fruit and honey (just to name a few). The one preferred is simply a matter of personal taste. Today's celebration focuses on the beer that is the world's most popular, except in England where ale is the one preferred.
