A new year is quickly approaching and there’s no better time to reflect on the past year than during the changing of the Gregorian calendar. With this changing of the year, Brewpublic has taken this time to round up its “Best of the Year List”. Many times these year-end lists include the Top 5’s of the year in a few various categories. And to keep with tradition, we’ve rounded up this year’s superlatives in a multi-part series that will bring you to a mindset on recapping the top beers and trends in 2014 and what lies ahead in 2015.
When compiling these year-end lists there is no correct or wrong answer. With well over 3,000 craft breweries in the United States there is no scientific measure to come up with a definite set of top choices. We will not hold these reputable individuals to their beer choices with absoluteness, because we realize, as mentioned in the past, that choosing just one beer, or even only five for that matter, as a favorite, can be as constrictive and limiting as choosing a favorite song, work of art, or even a close friend.
With 2015 on the horizon, lets take a look back at what stood out in 2014 to many in the craft beer industry along with what trends to look forward to in 2015. You may agree with some and you may begin yelling at your screen with others. But be certain that these lists may open your taste buds for something new and unique that you may not have enjoyed just yet.
Enough of this prelude, let’s now hear what these industry folks have to say about the year 2014. Read More…
