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

1. Hill Farmstead Brewery

This year’s winner is reigning champion Hill Farmstead Brewery, which has held the top spot for five consecutive years.

Hill Farmstead Brewery was established in 2010 by Shaun Hill in Greensboro Bend, Vermont, and is world-renowned due to its exclusivity and small-scale production. Many of its beers, including American pale ales, IPAs, saisons and stouts, regularly reach the top of RateBeer’s consumer rankings.

The most extensive range of Hill Farmstead’s beers is on offer at its own taphouse, which features 6-8 draft lines and limited release bottles, but die-hard fans will need to make a trip to Vermont in order to find a bar serving up drinks from this elite brewery.

    No German Beer in the top 10!

    • Daniel says:

      Agree, very limited in scope.

      German beer is fantastic for its quality of ingredients and overall composure, but there doesn’t seem to be much of a “craft” scene and little experimentation.

  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.

    No Czech or German or Holland or Belgium beers here?
