My Favorite Breweries

This list is purely based off of how the beers appeal to me. My ranking system as described in my article about logging beers on Untappd is mostly about personal enjoyment, but that a beer may experience a rating bump if I recognize that it’s not a quality thing, but a personal taste thing. In no way am I insinuating that breweries are bad if they do not make beers that suit my tastes.
