Best Beers in America

The AHA recently posted their 2010 Zymurgy Best Beers In America Poll

#1 is Russian River Pliny the Elder.  I've never had it.

In fact, I am ashamed to say that out of the top 5, the only one I've had is Sierra Nevada Pale Ale

Out of the top 10, I've only had 2.  Out of the whole list (top 50), I've only had 8.

As a home-brewer, I have a responsibility to at least taste a higher number of the top beers in America ... don't you think?  I do believe that I had better go out and get a few of these top beers and make myself drink them.

It will be a sacrifice, but I will force myself to perform this duty.


  1. As a fellow beer drinker, I think it is your civil duty to taste every beer on the list. You owe to other beer drinkers and your country. Don't be a slacker...
