    Apparently we are a cult. Every beer on here is described as "cultish". Now drink your koolaide flavored beers friends!

    I think HF will be on top 10 lists indefinitely.

    I understand why SN is on the list, but do think they're ranked too high.

    Another terrible list that no one should care about...

    What? How can [personal favorite brewery x, probably local] not be above [non-local brewery y]? This list is a joke.

    It's a perfectly reasonable list. Not my 10 (11) favorite breweries, and not in the order I'd pick them necessarily, but totally reasonable choices. Once you meet that criteria reasonable minds may differ.

    I'm not saying this one was done well, but I do like the concept of a beer power ranking, i.e. which breweries are hot/in the news/getting lots of talk/winning awards *right now* (in the case of this list, updating it each month).

    If Power Ranking involves influence in the industry, SN and DFH damn well deserve to be high on the list...

    Any problems I have with the list would be nit picking. (oh yeah, that is what we do here all the time.)
    That said, it looks like an interesting site. I want to read some of the other articles. Wraine14, thanks for letting me know about the site.
