    Saw somebody post this on Twitter today...

    Now I know we can all go on about how #x should be ranked higher then #y, and how my local x brewery is better then the represented y brewery, and how x under the radar brewery got shafted and deserves more love. Im not one to sweat the small stuff, and I think this list is pretty well represented with most the usual suspects.

    BUT, does anyone else think that it is absolutely CRIMINAL that Sierra Nevada Brewing Company is not represented on this list AT ALL?! Especially after being ranked 55 last year. I mean C'mon Man!

    I very rarely trust anything on ratebeer especially a majority of their beer ratings..always seem to be a bit high to me. I'm diggin' CCB at #5 though.

    Posting a link to the other site on BA is almost as mistaken as that list, but not quite.

    I think its cute how Cantillon and Midnight Sun and Weyerbacher and Allagash and De Struise and Hair of The Dog and Mikkeller and Fantome are ranked below Stone.....

    Okay enough pot stirring....it's just a list....
