Do you like beeer? Beer has a wide variety of styles and tastes, there’s something for (nearly) everyone. In the United States, the craft beer scene is thriving, with numerous breweries pushing the boundaries of flavor. 24/7 Wall St., a financial and data analysis company, recently compiled a list of the top 40 most delicious beers in the country.
To compile the list, they examined various rankings and assessments on specialized platforms like Beer Advocate, Hop Culture, RateBeer, and Craft Beer & Brewing, as well as from more general publications. While numerical ratings, when available, were considered in their selections, they also took into account the insights and descriptions provided by reviewers, whether they were amateur enthusiasts or seasoned professionals.
Michigan beers ranked among the most delicious
Two Michigan-based beers secured positions in the top 20 rankings. Founders Brewing Co.’s Canadian Breakfast Stout (CBS) claimed the 15th spot, while Bell’s Brewery’s Two Hearted Ale landed at number 11. CBS was described as a complex and satisfying creation, with praise for its dark, smooth, sweet, and oaky taste. Founders Brewing attributes this stout’s distinct character to a blend of coffee and imported chocolate aged in bourbon barrels previously used for maple syrup.
On the other hand, Two-Hearted Ale, an IPA named after Michigan’s Two-Hearted River in the Upper Peninsula, earned recognition for its well-balanced, refreshing, and smoothly piney hop notes.
Further up the list, Founders Brewery scored another success with Kentucky Breakfast Stout (KBS) at number 2. Interestingly, it claimed the top spot in Beer Advocate’s recent ranking of America’s top 250 beers with a score of 4.83 out of 5. The website praised this beer for its rich, dense, sweet, complex, smooth, and memorable profile, combining flavors of chocolate, coffee, maple syrup, bourbon, figs, toffee, and vanilla.
