    I like when these lists focus on beers that were released in 2013 (or at least new recipes/re-releases, etc). but obviously that's hard for a multitude of reasons even outside of distribution. stuff that to me knowledge was new this year that I dug off the top of my head would be DirtWolf, Permanent Funeral, Revolution Galaxy Hero, Espresso IRS, Two Brothers Sidekick... so hoppy stuff mainly i guess.
