    While there are some great beers on this list, can I ask why Hacker-Pschorr is rated at 8? Victory HopDevil is at 6?
    Meanwhile, Bells Hopslam ranks a dismal 33 and Bells Twohearted is at 19? Wow? And no love for Pliny???
    I must say, I totally agree with the love for KBS. That stuff is amazing! I’d put that MILES ahead of Chimay Blue.

    This list was an exact science. Don’t try to argue.

    I’m not trying to argue, I was just curious about the rankings. I’m a Hop Head at heart so my top 50 list would be more biased towards those types.

    Matt goldstein Reply:

    I was just kidding. LOL The best part of the list is argueing about it.

    Tizzle Reply:

    Thanks Beer Geek, the brewery that paid us the most money got preferential treatment in the rankings ;-) In my opinion however, I think that hops are just 1 piece in the puzzle of a great beer. Again in my opinion, I think that many folks think that a great beer is defined by how much hops they can cram in there. I prefer a little degree of balance. Also, I think styles and regions play a part into it. I mean in Asia, most of the beers are going to be brewed with rice, so obivously, they style is going to differ from a Bavaria. Stoudts leave a lot of room for the brew master to really acheive complex notes in the brew, but it does not mean a quality pale ale made with fresh, quality ingredients and clean water can compete. I agree with Matt, having these discussion are what it is all about!!!!!!!

    Beer Geek Reply:

    Tizzle, Ok maybe I’ll argue a little bit then. I realize you have your reasons for the rankings ( availability…etz) Chimay was one of my first loves as far as branching out to different beers, I just wouldn’t have placed it at the top of my list of 50 favorites. As far as DFH 60 at #2, when you talk about balance DFH uses predominately one type of hops for that particular ale which is called Simcoe leaving it a bit one dimensional IMPO. I agree that a good beer is one that has the right balance of sweet and bitter. When I have an ale that is heavy on the malts and fermentable sugars its a turn off for me. The same goes for DFH 120. It’s WAY over hopped. Better flavor profile for an ale (at least I think) can be achieved with the right amount and mix of hop types at the various interval during the brewing process. Doing this will add depth. Sculpin come to mind as a great example. I think its great when a brewer pushes the envelope and does something different to shake things up. DFH has been doing that for years now. It’s one of the reasons why I’ve come to love the big high gravity hop bombs that they put out today. That and I love trying new beers.
    Alright, i think I’ve rambled enough…..cheers!

    Pliny at 49?? Has anyone even had it?? Who compiled this list? I’m going to have involve myself more on this site. Chimay blue #1????

    Ballast point Sculpin deserves to be in the top 10 as well as the Pliny and Hopslam. I know I’m a hophead but come on guys.

    Matt Goldstein Reply:

    Although I’m not a Hop Head, I can’t see Sculpin or Hopslam being top 10.

    Tizzle Reply:

    As soon as someone treats me to a Ballst Point Sculpin and a Hopslam, it will immediately be considered.

    Also what is important to note in the creation of this list is the element of availability. As opposed to some other popular websites there’s a bunch of microbrews and international small brews that you just can’t get unless you travel around the globe. Obviously, there’s going to be a micro-brew that stands out here and there. But part of being “pound for pound” is notoriety and availability. IMO of course.

    Don, we won’t have this problem next year because of our 64 BEER MARCH MADNESS TOURNAMENT of Beer Champions! It’s a head to head blind tasting amongst the very best beers from a wide variety of styles, countries, regions, and breweries. Only true champions rise to the occasion!!

    If u see anything by Full Sail or Widmer, grab some and also throw it on this list, brahs!

    Seriously though, everyone try the Anniversary Ale by Sierra Nevada when it comes out.(Usually in the late fall) You can taste the difference in the quality of ingredients used to make this beer. I was blown away by the clean, flavorful hoppiness from something that’s Macro-Brewed.

    Chimay Red #38?!! Someone might get KTFO! Also speaking about representing the hood, SlyFox’s Phoenixville Pale Ale may make a run come March!!!!

    Matt goldstein Reply:

    Speaking of the Sly Fox, I will actually be taking part in their annual goat race. Yes, a goat race. I will have a goat on a leash and race it across the parking lot against other goats. If I win, their new beer gets named after my goat.

    Interesting List. I’m glad to see Rochefert 10 on the list, I love that beer. I will have to try out these beers. Thanks for the list.

    no yuengling? come onman rep ur hood a lil bit

    [Reply]

    Matt goldstein Reply:

    Look who decided to stop by. I love Yuengling, but it doesn’t belong on this list IMHO. Yuengling Light however might be one of the best light beers in the world. If you notice, we rep our hood for real with Victory, Dogfish Head, Flying Fish and Weyerbacher in the top 10 and all over the list.

    And why do all the comments say 8:05? Matt should really try to fix that.

    Where does Thorn(R) brew stand against this list?

    [Reply]

    Matt goldstein Reply:

    Palo Santo Marron is not on the list. it’s better than ipa 60 or 90. 90 is also better than 60 that’s rated pretty high.

    someone ought to do a list of best domestic beers p4p. busch should get the top spot.

    [Reply]

    Matt goldstein Reply:

    I’ve never heard of Palo Santo Marron but if I see it in the store I will definitely grab it. It’s an IPA?

    [Reply]

    Tizzle Reply:

    Is the Palo Santo the one brewed and aged in this special rare sandal wood only grown in the Amazon or some ish? If this is the same beer I’m thinking of I’ve had it, and so has Matt. We had this at my house before It’s a really, really strong brew with very complex notes. It’s not for the weak.
