Vote now in the 2016 Zymurgy Best Beers in America survey!
« on: February 22, 2016, 11:57:37 am »


Greetings, homebrewers,

The 14th annual Zymurgy Best Beers in America survey is now open! Please take a few minutes to vote for up to 20 of your favorite commercial beers available for purchase in the U.S.

http://www.homebrewersassociation.org/news/14th-annual-best-beers-america-voting/

You can vote for both domestic and imported commercial beers, but they must be available for purchase in the United States. We will tabulate the results and present them, along with clone recipes for some of the top beers, in the July/August issue of Zymurgy.

While you’re voting, please take a minute to include a short review one of your top beers in a "Comments" field. This is appreciated but not mandatory. We’ll include some of your comments in the July/August issue as well as in the “You’ve Gotta Drink This” in future installments of Beeroscope.

Voting ends March 11, so get over there and do your civic duty. Thanks for voting, and thanks for being a member of the AHA!

Hey, I put Yeungling Traditional for my write in, whatever floats your boat. I'm sure some would think that Guinness is constantly over-rated in these surveys. (I'm not one of those people, FWIW.)
Corn is a fine adjunct in beer.

And don't buy stale beer.

Is there a requirement that you have tasted the beer before voting for it?

Submitted my votes for 20 beers, 15 of which are of the more malty side of things.  Don't forget, there's more to life than hops!  Though even I had to bow to the almighty hop for 5 of the 20.

Only if it's Pliny the Elder or Heady Topper. All other beers must be tasted before voting.

I voted for Everybody's Brewing - Cash Stout "Best commercial stout in White Salmon, Wa!"

To be fair to everyone else, I only voted for the one beer.
