I am sold! And I'm disappointed that this exceptional pilsner doesn't have a higher ranking compared to the other sub-par offerings on this list.

Unlike some of its regional cousins (who shall remain nameless), this pilsner could actually pass for a German import. Its light, crisp flavor stand in stark contrast to the proliferation of over-hopped or sickly-sweet pilsners that other regional craft breweries have produced. All too often these days, craft breweries throw "imperial" or "double" on the end of a beer style, in order to cover their defects with alcohol. But not this beer.

Six Point has crafted a relatively modest (in alcohol content) session pilsner that's exceptionally quaffable and deserves a higher ranking among the "big" craft breweries and their mediocre lager offerings.
