Forbes’ top 20

Every now and again somebody posts a "Top X" beer list, and this week it’s from Forbes: The top 20 "Coolest Beers". The article itself is kind of beer-history-factoid boilerplate, but there’s a popup slide show (annoying!) that actually lists the 20 beers.

I have to say I’m not overly impressed with the selection. They’re mostly lighter beers (and Grolsch is on the list? Uhm, not my list), which isn’t bad, but I’d like to see a little more variety. Since it’s in annoying popup format, I’ll let you follow the link and check out the list yourself…

One of these days, I’ll have to publish my own Top Whatever Best Beers… though of course it’ll be slanted to my own bias. ;)

    Methinks this list from Forbes be slanted.
    One examples here, look at how many of the beers are from the Spaten brewery (Franziskaner doesn’t say Spaten on it but Beer Adbvocate says that’s who brews it).
    Where’s the Porter? Where’s the Stout?
    And why so many wheat beers on the list? Why Franziskaner? I would prefer a warm, light struck Erdinger to a Franken-beir, it’s just nasy to me. I would put Paulaner, Ayinger and Erdinger all above Franziskaner.
    Hey, I don’ty like lager beers much either so what do I know?
