Summer 2016 is quickly coming to an end, which means that weekends are being spent at backyard barbeques, trips to the beach, weekend getaways and any other way to get the most out of the last weeks of summer.

With all of these BBQs and get-togethers, one of the main constants for almost everyone is that when friends and family come together, they do it while sharing a cold one. When enjoying their favorite beers, people often talk about their experiences on social media, and give a special shout out to their favorite beer.

It’s not only beer-loving fans sharing their experiences on social media, it’s also brands and their partners, talking about promotions or sponsorship campaigns that they have going on. With that in mind, we used our Social Listening platform to pull information about trending beers on social media to see what is the top beer for Summer 2016.

Here’s the United States breakdown of where people are talking about top beers:
