Recently ratebeer.com performed a survey to determine the "World's Best Brewery" (survey here). The results are pretty interesting, but they don't seem to credible to me, as they are decidely skewed towards American beer, with two of the top three being from San Diego (that German for . . .). In fact, 7 of the top 10 are American, with two Belgium breweries and a British brewery rounding out the ten. I'd be willing to bet that if the survey was a random taste-test, with tasters from around the globe, only 2 or 3 American beers would make the top 10. Anyway, that's all just musing and conjecture on my part, so who really knows. I would like to point out that Harrisburg, PA's own Troegs made the list at number 26. That's a fine, fine beer.
NegativeMode Survey: In the spirit of beer drinking (and I know for a fact that most of you drink beer like it's water) and fostering conversation and scientific research, what is your favorite beer (or beers) readers? I'll start the discussion: Sam Smith Oatmeal Stout, Blue Moon Belgian White, Pabst Blue Ribbon (America's best in 1893). . . .
