Greg Koch of Stone Brewing has earned his Good Samaritan badge for the week and posted Beer Advocate Magazine’s ‘Best of’ list online. The magazine posts, annually, in its December issue a list of the top 25 beers. For those who haven’t received the mag yet (or weren’t planning to in the first place), you can check out the scanned copy on the Stone Brewing site.
Stone Brewing claimed five of the top 25 beers which is remarkable considering there are at least 1400 breweries/pubs in the U.S. alone. Across the world, there are thousands. I am not sure there is even a definitive number out there that exists but I am guessing that BeerMe’s figure of 10,521 is probably the closest that you will find.
already has a top list on its website…which is different from the magazine version. Both are marked ‘Best Beers on Planet Earth’ (of all-time) but it isn’t made clear as to what is different about them which just confuses and dilutes the importance of both lists.
