Guinness is the best selling beer brand in the United Kingdom.
Next to Buckingham Palace and crumpets, Guinness does seem ever so British. (Not to put too fine a point on it, the brand, founded in 1759, is actually Irish). Be all that as it may, Guinness is not the Number 1 selling beer in the UK. According to 2022 You/Gov data, that honor goes to San Miguel, a Spanish beer originally brewed in the Philippines. Guinness does score very highly for “fame” however. It ties with Budweiser as the most recognizable beer brand in the UK.
