These are the 10 best breweries in the world, according to RateBeer’s users

2. Cloudwater Brew Co.

Hailing from Manchester, England, Cloudwater are known for making a range of highly-rated IPAs and one of the most influential independent breweries in the UK.

Launched back in 2014, the urban brewery has climbed up from fifth place last year, when it was the first UK brewery to make RateBeer’s top 10.

Commenting on the victory, Cloudwater’s director Paul Jones wrote that he had initially expected the brewery to drop out of the top 10 altogether.

“That we’ve climbed from 5th last year to 2nd this year is a complete surprise,” Jones said.

“We started the year by evaluating, from memory, all the beers we brewed last year…It was a great exercise in analysing which beers stood out for their bold, positive impact, and which were beers we now looked back upon in shame.

Looking to the future, Cloudwater’s brewery boss said that “2018 is centred around anything it’ll be ensuring we look back this time next year even happier with our beer.”

    No German Beer in the top 10!

  2. Alex says:

    German breweries seem a bit behind the times in their offering styles…also, they don’t really tend to have the global reach that European breweries like Evil Twin have.

    How many German breweries make a great beer other than a wheat beer or pilsner or hefe? How many are making great IPAs or great Stouts? It just seems to me like German beer is really limited in scope.
