China dominates beer sales

Quick: what’s best selling beer in the world?

I’m just going to go ahead and assume you didn’t guess Snow.

Bloomberg ranked the top 10 selling beers in the world by market share, and apparently Snow is all the rage in China these days — up just shy of 600 percent in the past decade. Number two, Tsingtao, is also based in China.

Both can be tricky to find here in the states, so you’ll have to settle for number three or four, Bud Light and Budweiser.
