They should call it "RateImperialStout" instead of "RateBeer"It is a nice list though.
It should be titled "The World's Best Breweries According to American Beer Snobs".I think I have some Stillwater beer I picked up in Alabama, I'll check when I get home.
Not one brewery from Wasington state? WOW
Craft beer alone holds 25.5% of the beer market in the Seattle area, according to Beer Marketer's Insights, which is more than MillerCoors' 25.3% share and A-B's 23.8%.

But what does it leave? The non-AB InBev brands?
In Seattle, craft also gained 3 share of $$ to 25.5, and imports down double digits on volume, but retained 20 share of $$. MC had 25.3 share of $$ in Seattle, compared to AB's 23.8. They lost 2 share between 'em. MC volume down 5% in Seattle supers, while AB down 9%. Perhaps AB and MC trends not quite as bad in other channels (INSIGHTS doesn't have that data), but these #s paint fascinating picture of what AB/MC now face in advanced urban coastal markets: declining clout in a declining mkt while consumers embrace more and more choice.
