How was this list calculated?

Lists are generated using a Bayesian estimate that pulls data from millions of member ratings (not hand-picked) and normalizes scores based on the number of ratings for each beer. The general statistical formula is:
weighted rank (WR) = (v ÷ (v+m)) × R + (m ÷ (v+m)) × C

where:

R = average rating for the beer
v = number of votes (ratings) for the beer
m = minimum ratings required to be considered (currently 10)
C = the mean across the current list (currently 3.67)

But enough nerd talk. Let's drink a beer!
