CNN fails. They have San Diego as No. 3? Plus they credit the owner of Alpine, Pat, as being the owner of the Linkery. Nice fact checking.



Yeah I noticed that as well. Iíll send a copy to Pat as he may get a kick out of learning that CNN just bequeathed him the Linkery. It would appear they did only minimal research and no fact checking. There are well over 50+ breweries now in San Diego. Iím also a bit confused that they would list Duck Duck Goose and Alpine Ale as local standouts. DDG hasnt been seen on store shelves in quite some time and Alpine Ale is not one of Alpines best.

Another list! Woohoo!



San Francisco is not worthy of inclusion. Bend is a stretch. Portland and Asheville are no-brainers. Boston might also be a stretch. Denver works, if youíre including Fort Collins and/or Boulder/Longmont. Grand Rapids, Chicago, and St. Louis are worthy of inclusion.

have not read the list but i sincerely hope it does not include asheville, nc or really anywhere in the southeast. beer is definitely on an upswing in these states but still not worthy of any top 10 in my opinion after living here for 7+ drinking years and having done a fair amount of traveling domestically

And a list of things that should not be made lists of - also essential reading to make up our minds for us.

I do wonder why these are always made into lists as "The X Best ____ís in _____" instead of just "Hey, here are some things we thought were cool and thought you might like them as well. Why do they need to be "ranked". Canít they just be a compilation of cool shit?

The answer is Chicago. Might not have the best stuff within the city limits, but the combo of getting most of the best stuff from the west and east, plus 3 floyds distribution, new glarus stuff an hour away and all the awesome stuff close by in Michigan I cant think of a better place. Well maybe San Diego. But screw Portland, never had a good beer from Oregon.
