Just United States... Nothing official yet, just a straight tally but this is what it looks like!

1. 191 Philly
2. 167 Chicago
3. 161 San Diego
4. 135 Minneapolis
5. 131 DC
6. 113 Los Angeles


The greatest part of the score comes from what has been reported as available in these cities.

Criteria was number of top 800 beers reported, number of retailers in top 800 places, number of brewers in the top 800, number of beers in top 800 by style.

I like the idea. Out of curiosity, how did you arrive at the number 800? Seems like a more arbitrary endpoint than usual (say, 1000).

*based on how many actual reports have been made.

Seriously... DC?

While Chicago does get a ton of great beers, their incredibly short lived presence on shelves & taps should be considered as well.

To a point. Iíll take getting ridiculous one-offs on a weekly basis over having something like Stone Imperial Stout available on shelves.

Whichever way the arrow points, we have neither here in DC... Unless i am missing something. That is, we dont produce good beer. Maybe i am confused because this isnt a "best 6 US cities for local beer"... Which seems like a much more useful list to compile. Maybe i am being unfair.
