    1245 beers reviewed at the time. My stats from August of 2018:

    1 - American IPA | 187 | 15.02%
    2 - American Double/Imperial Stout | 159 | 12.77%
    3 - American Double/Imperial IPA | 132 | 10.6%
    4 - American Pale Ale | 47 | 3.78%
    5 - American Stout | 47 | 3.78%
    6 - Russian Imperial Stout | 45 | 3.61%
    7 - American Wild Ale | 45 | 3.61%
    8 - Milk/Sweet Stout | 43 | 3.45%
    9 - Saison/Farmhouse | 39 | 3.13%
    10- American Porter | 32 | 2.57%

    Current stats with a total of 2095 reviews:

    American IPA | 252 | 12.03%
    American Imperial Stout | 234 | 11.17%
    New England IPA | 171 | 8.16%
    American Imperial IPA | 154 | 7.35%
    American Pale Ale (APA) | 82 | 3.91%
    American Stout | 64 | 3.05%
    Russian Imperial Stout | 63 | 3.01%
    Belgian Saison | 63 | 3.01%
    English Sweet / Milk Stout | 62 | 2.96%
    American Wild Ale | 62 | 2.96%

    I will say, it's very 'easy' for me to add IPAs and NE IPAs to my stats with their abundance and their (typical) availability in an individual can. I still prefer stouts and barleywines (fell just outside of this list), but their packaging and pricing are prohibitive for nightly consumption. Likewise, the number of imperial stout/barleywine releases pales in comparison with the number of IPA releases. In fact, some of my favorite breweries in town have never even made a barleywine.

    Only thing that jumps out to me in the breakdown is how it just drops off after the top 4. I'd like to think I review everything I drink. Marzen was a surprise on this list for me.
