    Ok after reading the post about Victory Storm King being a former number one beer and where did it go it made me wonder , what all beers have been number one on BA since this site came to be , I would kind of like to try as many as I could that are still around. Anyone have this information or is this impossible to obtain?

    I think a HOF type list of former number ones would be a great idea. I'm curious to find out how many former number ones I've had without knowing.

    Good idea for a list. Doubt the bros will make it though.

    Kate the Great, Pliny the Younger, and Westvleteren 12 all held the top spot

    There was that time in 2009-10 where the list algorithm was change a few times and a lot of smaller release/one of/tap only/unicorn tear beers made the top ten. There was some fun. Chocolate rain made the top for a little, barrel aged Dark Lord did as well. It was a wild and interesting time.

    Anyone willing to crawl through the internet archive ought to have no trouble putting together such a list.

    I'd rather see a "Top Ten of <insert year here> List", where the site could take rating from a particular year, and show the scores that way.

    A lot of ratings change each year for particular variants.

    We talked about this not too long ago. All of the data is there, so it would be fairly easy to recreate past Top Beer lists or track the performance of any beer. Unfortunately it's not a priority, but something we'd definitely like to add.

    Sounds like a job for an intern.

    As soon as you add this one, we'll want something else. Remember - if you give 'em an inch, they'll want the ruler.

    Of course, if the point is to drive web traffic and promote a business, giving people what they want, even if that means they change their minds later, is not a bad thing. We humans are a fickle bunch.
