YouGov BrandIndex calculates the beers' Buzz scores by asking respondents, age 21 and older: "If you've heard anything about the brand in the last two weeks, through advertising, news or word of mouth, was it positive or negative?" St. Patrick's Day responses were compiled over the course of the last 12 weeks.

The company says that consumer perception of beer is up in 2016, after two years of descending buzz around beer brands in general.
