Bud Light is the most popular brand for underage binge-drinking, accounting for more than 13 percent of consumption, according to a study by researchers at Boston University and Johns Hopkins. The total is nearly double that of Jack Daniel’s bourbons, which was the second most popular at 7 percent.
Although Bud Light was reported as the most popular brand, spirits were much more popular for underage binge-drinking, making up nearly 44 percent of consumption while beer made up less than 33 percent. Vodka was the most popular spirit consumed, with Smirnoff being the most popular brand.
Binge-drinking accounts for around two-thirds of all under-age alcohol consumption, according to the study, with the top-25 brands in terms of overall consumption accounting for more than 46 percent of all binge-drinking. The survey included 898 brands.

(@lilsarg is pretty sure, but not positive, that it’s a 30-pack, not a 30-rack. We will update as more information becomes available.)Austin Tedesco can be reached at Austin.Tedesco@Globe.com. Follow him on Twitter @Tedescau.
