Readers submitted their favorite beers to Zymurgy magazine, the official publication of the American Homebrewers Association, who then put together a list of the top 50 ranked by popularity (though there’s an extraordinary number of ties). Who got top spot? Well, the winner is…
Russian River Pliny the Elder. Not familiar? Well, it should be as it’s won this contest for the third year in a row. Maybe you should check it out. Though it’s reportedly hard to come across on the east coast — not very fair to be included on America‘s list, then, some East Coasters are probably saying right now — but if you live out west, give it a whirl. Or give one of the other 49 beers a try.
