How I ended up on my list

Well, Zymurgy's 2014 Best Beers in America list came out yesterday.

I didn't really do much with the 2013 list. When I posted Zymurgy's 2013 Best Beers in America, there were 11 beers on the list that I had never tried.

Now, I still have 6 beers left. Most of them are on the 2014 list as well, and I'm not sure I'll have any better luck getting to them this year than I did last year.

Here are the 2013 beers that I still have not tried:

T9. Lagunitas Sucks (on 2014 list as well)  16. The Alchemist Heady Topper (on 2014 list) T27. Troegs Nugget Nectar. (on 2014 list)  31. Russian River Consecration (on 2014 list)  T32. Russian River Supplication (on 2014 list)          45. Firestone Walker Parabola  

I did get to Odell's Myrcenary Double IPA
6 beers isn't too bad, but the fact that I only got to try 5 is a bit disappointing.

I was able to check Firestone Walker Wookey Jack off my list.

So, now I'll start looking for the 2014 beers. I don't expect I'll be able to do any better this year than last, but we'll see. Once the list actually gets published to the AHA website, I'll share my new 2014 list.



  1. I actually just looked over the list recently, myself. I'm missing 9 or 10... Can't remember if I had one without checking untappd, so maybe it doesn't count... And I've been to 6 of the top 10 Breweries. 8 out of the 25, but that doesn't sound as cool lol I should try to hunt down the others that I can. I hope your quest works out.


  2. Thanks for leaving a comment, Allen. I just posted my to-drink list for 2014. I have 10 to try. Well, actually, I tried 2 of the 10 last week while I was in Florida, but I am waiting until I blog about them before I give myself credit.

  3. See Zymurgy's 2014 Best Beers in America for the "new" list of beers I have to try to find.
