Our Favorites - Beers across USA

We like to share our list of favorites (for all kinds of stuff) to save you time and share some "expertise".

So let's talk beer! Check this out, below are the favorite beers according to Zymurgy Magazine — the official magazine of the American Homebrewers Association.

For over 15 years, Zymurgy has asked the group's tens of thousands of members to cast votes for the best beers in the country. Since their readers are all homebrewers, the assumption is that these people have more refined beer palates than most people, so whatever they pick must really be good!

Anyway, according to Zymurgy, for the last 8 years Pliny the Elder (a double IPA from Russian River Brewing Company) held the top spot — until now.
