Beer Does Not Have To Be Overpowering

The top 25 beers, according to Wine Enthusiast magazine (PDF).

India Pale Ale and variants: 2

Barleywines: 3

Imperial Stouts: 2

Beers with >7% abv: 14

Beers with >10% abv: 5

Not quite as many extreme beers as I expected, though the top 15 are heavily weighted toward the extreme. But…Trumer Pils the second-best pilsner on the planet? Huh? I smell a rat – there’s no way these rankings were done via blind taste test. I suspect the “reach under the table for wad of cash from craft brewery’s marketing manager” was likely the methodology of choice.
