How was this list calculated?

Lists are generated using a Bayesian estimate that pulls data from millions of BeerAdvocate user reviews and normalizes scores based on the number of reviews for each beer.

The general statistical formula is:
weighted rank (WR) = (v ÷ (v+m)) × R + (m ÷ (v+m)) × C

R = average rating for the beer = (Rating)
v = number of reviews for the beer = (votes)
m = minimum number of reviews required to be considered (currently 10)
C = the mean rating across the dataset (currently 3.66)
But enough nerd talk. Let's drink a beer!
