Since the year began, there has been a lot of drama and controversy surrounding Bud Light and politics. It seems as though the tension around the beer giant has caused it to fall from the top.
According to reports, Bud Light is no longer America's most popular beer. Nielsen data shows that the American beer was overtaken in May by Modelo Especial, the Mexican lager brewed near Mexico City. Bud Light, which previously held the top spot for more than two decades, fell to seven-point-three percent.
According to Yahoo Finance:
In the four-week period ending June 3, Modelo Especial made its way to the top. Modelo holds 8.4% of total retail sales in the US beer market. That's compared to Bud Light, which now holds 7.3%, per Nielsen and Bump Williams Consulting. At the start of the year, Bud Light held a 10.3% share, higher compared to Modelo, 7.5%.
