Plato Logic have also produced a new league table of the top beer brands, based industry value. This is a calculation of the actual net invoiced ex-brewery value.

On this basis, the Bud Light range (including various line extensions) is the world’s most valuable beer brand.

Ian Pressnell, Director of Plato Logic commented: “We emphasise that these numbers are Plato Logic’s own computations and are clearly subject to exchange rate variances, nevertheless they are a powerful indicator of those brands that are now leading the way in international markets.” 

There are some notable differences between the value and volume league tables: only 2 Chinese brands are in the value top 10 (4 by volume); Heineken rises 5 places.
