Corona and Dos Equis lovers made Mexico the supplier of more than two out of three imported beers in the U.S. last year.

Mexico exported a staggering 712 million gallons to its northern neighbor. That’s the most among exporting nations, according to data from the Beer Institute. The Netherlands came in second place, exporting 145 million gallons for a market share of almost 14 percent. Belgium, Canada and Germany followed with single-digit market-share figures.
