Zymurgy's Best Beers in America - 2010

So Zymurgy polled its readers to come up with the best beers in American. I cannot complain about the first 3, I think it is spot on. Rahr and Sons brewing looks to be the winner however, with 12 beers in the top 50...umm 2 problems I had never herd of Rahr and Sons brewing and I have never HAD any Rahr and Sons beers... So who wants to send me some?

  1. Right there with ya on #4, Guess you're not really a Stone fan, I like them just a little pricey

  2. I wouldn't sweat the Rahr beers. i live here in Dallas. They are very pedestrian. the Ugly Pug Schwarzbier is pretty good but the rest, meh

  3. They must have had an army sending in votes to Zymurgy then...
