And the winner is:

Feldschlösschen!

(and they have the country listed on the map as 'Swiss' )

Re: And the winner is:

"Most popular", certainly not best. Surprise level = 0.

All the chart shows is the power of marketing.

Where is Stella? Oh what fond memories of a young lad. The relationship faded a long time ago unfortunately.

Yet somehow they find space to write "Liechtenstein" in full. Although without identifying their best-selling beer.

Somehow interesting that Stella and Carlsberg fail to make top spot in their respective home countries. Gives you some hope after all...

Although seeing Carling in the UK and Bud Light in the US drains that hope away again....

Not really surprising - walk into a Swiss bar and there's a 95% chance that there will only be one beer on tap, and there's a high chance it will be Feldschlössen in the northern part, and Calanda in Graubunden.

Most popular for the only reason that there's no other choice.

That said I don't mind the odd Feldy - it's inoffensive enough, and gets the job done.

I'm very surprised that Jupiler (aka horse piss) is more popular than Stella in Belgium. It must be all the Flamands I think as Stella was definitely the beer of choice in Wallonie.

I don't mind Feldsclösschen but I'm a girl and prefer the lighter beers.
OH is a Leffe man when drinking lager type beers and would put that way ahead of any Swiss beer and Jupiler or Stella. His real preference though is for 'real ales'.

Re: And the winner is:

What I did find surprising is that the survey includes Saudia Arabia and their non alcoholic beer brand 'Moussy' (which incidentally is 38% owned by Feldschlösschen Getränke AG). I'd personally rather have a Coke
