    The list is missing Bukowski's as well right? That is certainly a bar that deserves mentioning!

    Decent joint, but it's not in the same class as Lord Hobo, Publick House, and Deep Ellum.

    Ho Hum. Another subjective list for craft beer. Anyplace is a top beer bar if you enjoy yourself there and want to go back again.

    Surprising lack of Colorado bars on there.

    I tend to agree with you, but they've nailed some spots that I absolute love here in the South: Trapeeze, Thirsty Monk, Sergio's & Holy Grale are damn good spots. I have a beef with their selection from Charlotte, Growlers Pourhouse... not only does it not belong on the list, it's not even one of the better spots in Charlotte.

    Sure there are tons of beer bars folks will love, it just depends on what your looking for. I love the Belgian/dutch beer bars, they have small drafts line ups but Huge bottle line ups and the bottle prices are not rip off, like most American bars are.:eek:

    No place is going to be great for everyone. I like it quiet, cozy, with a huge list, otherwise I just stay at home. My basic deal was take 100 random unbiased folks and send them to place they never been and have NO bias for. But is not going to happen. Besides lists make for great arguments...no 1 is ever happy with any of them. Unless they made it up themselves....:D
