I like a good IPA, but sometimes a Bud Lt or Corona will do the job.
There are thousands of breweries in the U.S. and around the world, and pretty much all of them make an IPA . . . it’s basically the table stakes for running a craft brewery.
But do beer drinkers actually LIKE them?
A new survey asked craft beer drinkers if they like “hoppy” beers . . . and only 45% said yes. 24% said no, and the rest didn’t have a strong opinion one way or another.
The three styles of craft beer that they liked the most are: Clean and crisp . . . fruity . . . and dark.
And the three least popular styles are: Bitter . . . sour or tart . . . and cloudy.
