Beer Me Please

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). . . .

Red Hook IPA.

You must also visit the Black Table's beer reviews (more). It's one of my favorites. Their ratings range from "strap-on" to "liquid homelessness."

What? Kalik didn't make the list for the beer review?

And they actually reviewed Strongbow..gross..why don't they just review Beast while they are at it..Good Ole Milwaukee's best..let me puke my guts out now. How about some Natty Light with your other shitty beer?

On a side note, the owner of Foggy beer asked me out a few weeks ago. So I got the hook up in DC if anyone likes that beer. Personally never tried it.

i must say that the best beer i've ever had was from a brewery in prague which i recently visited. a fantastic sour cherry beer. best beer i've ever had. and they had plenty of other delicious special beers on tap. and they were rediculously inexpensive. yay for prague.
