What is America drinking? The answer may surprise you. There’s no question that craft beer is a rising force in the beverage industry. But when it comes to sheer volume and sales, as this infographic from VinePair shows, macro breweries still reign supreme.

The infographic explores the top 20 most popular beers in the United States right now, and the results reveal some interesting insights. For one thing, while interest in Budweiser might be waning compared to prior years, it’s still moving an awful lot of units—it’s the #3 best selling beer in the country. But its slimmer brother brand Bud Light is outshining Budweiser by a landslide, selling 294 million cases compared to Budweiser’s 104 million cases. In fact, sales reflect a healthy consumer interest in lighter lagers altogether, perhaps stemming from an increased consumer interest in reduced calorie better-for-you products overall.

Which brands are filling out the rest of the Top 20? Do these beers reflect what you’re stocking your fridge, menu, or retail shelves with? Check out the infographic and see who made the list:
