It may have been National Beer Day, but many here in the States yesterday hoisted a bottle of brew from Mexico, just south of the border but far and away the top source for US imported beer.

Total US beer imports were up 11.7% by value, and 6.9% by volume, in 2014 compared with the year before.

Also on the rise: Mexican beer’s command of the US market. Mexico claimed half of US beer imports by volume in 2010; last year it captured 62%. Over the same period, the Netherlands saw its share fall from 21% to 16%; Canada, from 10% to 6%; and Ireland, from 3% to 2%.

Belgium was the only other one among the top 5 countries of origin to gain share, from 4% in 2010 to 7% in 2014.

Here are the 5-year value and volume trends in US imported beer:
