The Best American Domestic Beers

List RulesOnly domestic beers brewed and manufactured in the United States.

This list features the best domestic beers, ranked by the beer loving community. There’s nothing better than celebrating a special event with loved ones, throwing a Super Bowl party or just spending the night out with friends. Though many international beers are great, sometimes you just need a reliable, American brewski.

What makes a great tasting beer basically boils down to the quality of ingredients used. A cheaper, lower quality will use less expensive ingredients in the brewing process and often uses a substandard method of fermentation and processing. A higher quality brew will use the best processes of malting, boiling, fermenting, filtering and packing the product, resulting in a higher quality of beer. The basic components of beer include a source of starch (like malted barley) which is fermented, allowing it to be converted into an alcohol, a brewer’s yeast and a flavoring agent.

This list discusses the best domestic beers from the United States, including: Bud Light, Budweiser, Coors Light, Miller Lite, Busch, and Michelob Ultra Light.
