  • When St. Louisans are too drunk to drive, they turn to good old Bud Light.

InBev? What's InBev? Seven years after Anheuser-Busch was purchased by Belgians, Budweiser products remain St. Louis' go-to choice for booze.

That's not just anecdotal — though you can certainly find plenty of evidence of it in St. Louis-area bars. No, it turns out even when we're drinking in the privacy of our homes, we're sticking with the local favorite.

That's born out by new data from alcohol-delivery service Drizly, which came to the St. Louis market in December and has been steadily bringing us beer, wine and liquor ever since. Its data shows that not only is Bud Light the No. 1 delivery choice among St. Louis customers, but that Budweiser is No. 2 and Bud Select is No. 3. Pretty impressive sweep.

As it turns out, our devotion to Anheuser-Busch products sets us apart from the rest of the country. Nationwide, Tito's Vodka is the No. 1 pick of Drizly users, with Bud Light, Stella Artois and Coors Light finishing in the next three places. Svedka, the Swedish vodka, shows up at No. 5 across the country.

Below, we've posted St. Louis' overall top five choices, followed by our top five liquor choices — and then Drizly's top 10 nationwide. Meanwhile, if you're tired of the same old same old, Drizly has just announced a partnership with Craft Beer Cellar, so you can try something new if you're so inclined.

Or, you know, just keep drinking those Budweiser products. Statistics show that when you're in St. Louis, you'll always fit right in.
