My Current Top 30 Beers

Its not easy to create a top 30 list, but I like my lists, has always created them for all kind of different topics and purposes.

The list do not reflect what is seen as the best beer in the world, merely what I like to drink at the moment.

So I will try to update as soon as possible, when my taste changes (happens often). You can probably also see that I am currently into US-micros (and of course Swedish micros), so it does not say that they are any better than the european originals, but what the heck, it is my list, so I can do what ever I like, and you will never see Westvleteren on the number 1 spot.

nice list you have there. I am planning on doing one in the near future as well and there are definitely more than a few beers on there that will be overlapping your list. Good stuff.

Good luck then Steve. I can simply say that it is not easy to create the list.

There are simply too much to choose from, and why a single beer should be on the list or not, is definately not a science, no mostly what you recently have tasted.

But at least I tried to figure out beers that I would come back to often and could consider drinking 2 of, through that many other great beers did not get a spot in the list.

Nice beer list, matey. I'm quite keen of the Russian River and Dogfish offerings as well.
