Working on my “Best Of” post

Just so the suspense can start killing you, I’m working on my “Brew Site Best of 2009” post which I should have online in the next day or so: my personal “best of” list as gleaned from the beer and brewery reviews I made online in 2009.

I don’t have the review written yet, but technically I visited (and have notes and pictures) Pizza Port Carlsbad in 2009, so I’m debating adding it to the list of eligible breweries; my own admittedly weak criteria has been to consider only those I wrote a review for, and the Pizza Port review will technically be up in 2010. Oh, the dilemma of self-imposed rules for building out an entirely opinionated list…

But I’m curious as to what all your “Best of 2009” beers and breweries were. Let loose in the comments.


  1. Ommegang Rouge and Bell’s DeProef Van Twee would definitely be on my best of 2009 list. And Rouge is quickly making my best of 2010 list as well thanks to one enterprising bar manager who bought all the remaining kegs in the Twin Cities.

  2. I’d say right up there would be Port’s 3rd Anniversary Ale, when they first tapped it at the Lost Abbey…it lost something when they bottled, but to have it at the brewery was something special.
