    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.

  3. Roman says:

    No Czech or German or Holland or Belgium beers here?
