LAKE FOREST, CA (March 8, 2022) – iPourIt, Inc—North America’s leading provider of self-pour draft beverage dispense technology—today released its annual report on the most-poured beverages across all of the iPourIt systems during 2021. The report is in its fifth year of publication and includes exclusive on-premise data and insights into consumer preference, demographics, and revenue generation.
“There has never been a report like this for self-pour operators, brewers, distributors, and anyone else looking for comprehensive real-life data. This is the pulse of the industry,” said Doug Gray, VP Product Management, iPourIt. “It exposes not only the most preferred beverages, but also insights and trends that will help beverage producers, suppliers, and operators understand which mix of products will improve their businesses. Ultimately answering the question, ‘What do consumers want?’”
The 2021 Pour Report includes comparative information to the previous year’s report showing some consistencies, as well as a variety of changes and new additions. Among the top 15 most poured beer styles, 14 carried over from the prior list and Seltzer was added for the first time. India Pale Ale returned as the number one most-poured style and Cider rose to second-place replacing Lager.
For 2021, the top five most-poured products overall included:
- Michelob ULTRA – Anheuser-Busch (Lager)
