It's that time again! October is around the corner, which means we're looking for exceptional US breweries that have opened in the past year for our 7th annual "Class of 20XX" feature. (Check out the 2016 picks we chose with your help.) As always, the article will appear in the January issue of BeerAdvocate magazine. Please post suggestions below or send them to: editorial [at] beeradvocate.com with "Class of 2017" in the subject line and a 1–2 sentence pitch as to why we should consider a particular brewery. When in 2017 did it officially open and begin selling beer? Why does it stand out? And what makes it special to you? Please note that the industry grew from 4,504 US craft breweries in 2015 to 5,234 in 2016 and things haven't slowed down much since. In other words, while all nominations will be considered, we unfortunately can't include every new brewery in the magazine. Thanks in advance for all of your recommendations!
