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

4. AleSmith Brewing Company

Starting out life in a small single-unit space in San Diego 1995, AleSmith is the oldest breweries to make it into RateBeer’s top 10.

“Grand master” beer judge Peter Zien bought the brewery and became its brewmaster in 2002, and since then has gone on to open a second, larger brewery and tasting room for visitors.

Alesmith is no stranger to accolades on the consumer website, earning a place in the top 10 world brewers ranking both in 2006 and 2013.

Zien is also known for international collaborations, and in 2015 handed over the original brewery to Danish outfit Mikkeller, transforming it into one of the European drinks maker’s US outposts.

    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.
