The Worst Beer Lists of 2011

By my calander we're 3 days into 2011 and I can already do a roundup of the worst beer list put forth in 2011. If someone can find a list that bests this one, well... I will amend my post.

Some AOL-affiliated company's list of the 20 best cities in the world to drink a beer

Some highlights: Prague is not on the list. No English cities are on the list. Northampton, Massachusetts is on the list (if you're wondering where Northampton is, so is most of Massachusetts). There is also this fact filled gem about San Francisco:

For any lover of American craft beer, San Francisco could be considered the Mecca of the American beer world. It was here that Fritz Maytag purchased the floundering Anchor Steam Brewery in the mid-1960s, reviving not only the brewery but several near-extinct beer styles, and re-introduced Americans to styles like Barleywine, Winter Warmer and IPA.

Sorry Portland, San Francisco is the American beer mecca. Because of Anchor who not only brew, but re-invented IPA, (and perhaps not steam beer) apparently.

  1. Jaysus they got Dublin very wrong. For one thing Guinness did not start out in Dublin, it started in Leixlip county Kildare.

    Secondly, and most importantly, there has bot been a "cask" of Guinness since before I was born. It is all nitrogenated and kegged.

    Glad Dublin is there but not going on the info they have.
