A New Way Of Looking At ‘Best Of’ Lists…

One diligent (or bored) reader over at BeerAdvocate compiled his own Best of BA list, taking the top beer from every style listed on the site. Whereas the ratings sites tend to heavily favor a small number of styles (with Imperial Stouts dominating) to the exclusion of many others (lagers generally speaking), it provides an interesting and across-the-board look at what reviewers consider to be the world’s best beers.
