I just came across an article (via Digg) from Mens Journal titled 25 Best Beers In America. It’s a pretty great list and I must admit I’ve yet to try all the beers included. However, out of the many I am familiar with I’m not entirely in agreement with their height placement on the list. Thusly, I feel obliged to share with you my top 10 (I prefer 10 to 25) beers in America. I encourage you all to include your own lists within the comment section.

I warn you. My selections do have bias for Michigan brews.

  1. Imperial Stout – Dragonmead
    Warren, MI
  2. Nut Brown Ale – Motor City Brewing Works
    Detroit, MI
  3. Red Snapper Special Bitter – Arbor Brewing Company
    Ann Arbor, MI
  4. Oatmeal Stout – Wolaver’s
    Middlebury, VT
  5. Edmund Fitzgerald Porter – Great Lakes Brewing Company
    Cleveland, OH
  6. 60 Minute IPA – Dogfish Head
    Milton, DE
  7. Dragon Daze – Dragonmead
    Warren, MI
  8. Pils – Stoudt’s
    Adamstown, PA
  9. Oberon – Bell’s
    Comstock, MI
  10. Shakespeare Stout – Rogue
    Newport, OR

There are a few others that could place pretty high on the list if I could remember what they were called…

Overall, my favorite brewpub (if it weren’t obvious) is Dragonmead in Warren, MI. My favorite “beer bar” is Brickskeller in DC. And my favorite type of beer is Stout (Imperial Stout, if you want to be specific).
