In the ranks of America's best-selling beers, Budweiser no longer qualifies for even a bronze. Bud has dropped to No. 4, according to sales estimates from industry publication Beer Marketer's Insights, reports CNN. Remaining at No. 1 is Bud Light, followed by Coors Lite, and the new No. 3: Miller Lite. Corona Extra rounds out the top five, followed by Michelob Ultra and Modelo Especial. These mainstays are generally being hit by a double-whammy, notes USA Today: People are drinking less beer, and they're increasingly turning to craft beer when they do choose to indulge.
