Beer Advocate's Top 100 SW Beers: Who From PHX is in the Top 10?
For those of you not familiar with Beer Advocate, it's the bible for beer snobs. A place where we can all go to share our much coveted opinions of rare and no-so-rare craft beer. An online venue to brag about our beer conquests.
Recently Beer Advocate put out a list of the Top 100 Beers of the Southwest. This included the top ranking beers from online user reviews of brews from Arizona, New Mexico, Oklahoma, and Texas.
Texas breweries almost swept the top ten, but our hometown favorite Four Peaks Brewing Company managed to secure the 6 spot with their Hop Knot IPA. Four Peaks' Hopsquatch Barleywine, Raj IPA, 8th Street and Oatmeal Stout all took there places consecutively at 64, 79, 94 and 95.
See who else made the list after the jump...
Somehow the Phoenix branch of corporate brewhouse BJ's squeaked in at 100 with their seasonal Pumpkin Ale.
