Cheers to the “Best Beers in America”

Zymurgy magazine, the publication of the American Homebrewers Association (AHA), today revealed the results of its 17th annual Best Beers in America survey.

Top Ranked Beers:

  1. Bell’s Brewery, Two Hearted Ale
  2. Russian River Brewing Co., Pliny the Elder
  3. Sierra Nevada Brewing Co., Pale Ale
  4. Founders Brewing Co., KBS (Kentucky Breakfast Stout)
  5. The Alchemist, Heady Topper

Not a bad list, at all! I'm not a big fan of Sierra Nevada Pale Ale, but it's definitely drinkable. I just got back from a trip to Tampa, and pretty much cleaned-out The Breakroom Bar and Grill's stock of Bell's Two Hearted. It's a really nice brew! Nothing needs to be said about Pliny and, of course, all of the Founders beers are outstanding.
