Minnesota Government Shutdown Enter Its Second Week


(NEWSER) – Americans still love beer—it's a $100 billion industry in the US—but there are some beers we're just not that into anymore, particularly as specialty and craft beers become more popular. 24/7 Wall St. runs down 10 beers falling out of favor with Americans:

  • Natural Light: Despite the aforementioned demand for light beer, Natty Light saw a 26.6% decline in sales from 2009 to 2014, putting it at No. 9 on the list. Perhaps not surprising, considering RateBeer.com users rank it the worst beer in the world.
  • Miller Genuine Draft: Jumping toward the top of the list, MGD comes in at No. 3 with a whopping 54.5% decline in sales from 2009 to 2014. MillerCoors is actually closing the plant that first brewed MGD.
