In regards to the Top 250 and the Beers of Fame. Personally, I don't think that pursuing only beers on the list only because they are on it is a good way to go about things because there are so many great local crafts that are under appreciated and you should always support local business but I think its also fun to go hunting every so often from the ones that are high up. I'm just curious as to what everyone thinks is a more reliable / legitimate list. I feel as though there are pros and cons to each one. For example, I think to be high up on the Top 250 shows that you are one of the best beers there is, period. On the other hand, being on the top of the Beers of Fame list just shows you are one of the best that meets X criteria. Some of the beers on the Top 250 I don't even want to take into consideration sometimes because they have 150-300 ratings total and there are so many that are just unpractical for 99% of us to ever even try. Some examples (to me at least) would be Pliny the Younger which I feel is just a more boozed up version of PtE and you will probably never see or taste it and if you do its going to be a very small quantity. Also, all the crazy variants of certain beers like the many types of Dark Lord, etc. I think sometimes it is kind of cool to say, "Hey, this beer I'm drinking is actually the X-th best beer in the world," but according to which list?
