As we are winding down, I thought I’d list my beers of the year. Now these aren’t necessarily the top 10 that I scored because, shit the Deep Woods Series Alone from Revolution would gangster the whole damn list. Here are 10 that I loved a lot in 2020 in no particular order. Each is spectacular and worth your time drinking. I didn’t want to make all the same style so I tried to mix up the list for some variety. 

  1. The Deep Woods Series from Revolution. Looking at my ratings for 2020, the top 5 scores are from here so it doesn’t matter which one you choose, you’re in for a treat! If I had to choose one of these, I’d take the Double Barrel VSOD.
  2. 90 Minute Imperial IPA from Dogfish Head. A classic and one of the first Imperial IPA’s out there.
  3. Black Is Beautiful from Foreign Exchange and Church Street. There were a lot of this series I liked this year, but this one was my favorite. This had coffee, cocoa and cinnamon and was excellent! 
  4. Alemerica The Beautiful from Hop Butcher. Hop Butcher is known for and excels at their NE style, their milkshake style IPA’s but this one just a plain old Pale Ale shows that everything they do, they do well! 
  5. Burst Of Sunshine from More Brewing Company. I’m a big fan of More Brewing and for me, Burst Of Sunshine really stood out as the best of the best from them. 
  6. Il Spundo from Cinderlands. Il Spundo is an Italian Pilsner and really made a huge impression on me! I could definitely see myself having this sitting in Milan.
  7. Coastal Sunshine V5 from Humble Forager. This Fruited Sour was like having summer in a glass. Excellent!
  8. Full Earth from Old Nation Brewing Company. I’m kind of mad it took me a long time to try their beers. This NE/Double IPA made me a fan!
  9. Jungle Boogie from Marz. This is a wheat beer made with Rooibos Tea and really is great!
  10. Time Consumer from Liquid Love. Vienna Style lagers are one of my favorite styles and this one for me was the best I had in 2020.
