Today, Google released its Year in Search 2014, an annual list of the top search words across the globe. Recipes remain among the most searched for food-related terms, but people are also very curious about beer and cocktails. Budweiser, Corona, Keystone, and Miller topped the list of the most searched-for beer names. Unsurprisingly, hipster favorite PBR made the cut and landed at number eight on the list.

On the cocktail side of things, Google reveals that Margaritas are still the most searched for alcoholic beverage. Martinis, Sangrias, Mojitos, and Mimosas round out the top five. The Dude's favorite, the White Russian, made the cut; the Grasshopper did not.

Plenty of people searched for diet-related terms this year, as in years past. The top three diets for 2014 according to Google are Paleo, Atkins, and Gluten Free.

Somewhat surprisingly, lots of people are curious about how many calories are in a banana (bananas contain 105 calories on average). See the full list of food-related search terms below, and check out all of Google's Year in Search 2014.
