The 20 most popular beers among baby boomers

Baby boomers, in other words adults who were born between 1946 – 1964, are often noted for their brand loyalty. Moreover, despite making up just 21% of the population of the United States per Vinepair, their enthusiasm for the booze industry is a key marker for brands.

As such, coming out on top of a list such as the 20 most popular beers among baby boomers is surely a coveted victory for brewers.

Well, new research from YouGov has answered that very question and, perhaps unsurprisingly, big-name brands dominate the list.

The poll asked respondents to give popular beers a rating before ranking the “positivity” they felt towards each brand. The responses were then collated to create this official top 20.

  1. Heineken – Popularity Rating: 49%
