I stared at it for like 4 minutes, and I'm not even sure, is this image comedy or drama or irony or what?

For the "Top American Beers" chart:

Alaskan Smoked Porter rated at the #1 beer - seriously?

Odouls Amber (nonalcholic) as #5 with Old Milwaukee Light #6 -?????

Who rated these based on what criteria?

This loses all credibility when it calls Old Milwaukee Light the 6th best beer in America and says that Anheuser-Busch is the top brewery in America. I don't care what judges say, those are not the best beers in America

Medals at GABF. So, if your local brewery chooses not to enter, you cannot have the best beer in the country. Sorry.

Have you ever had one? Seriously? Thats actually not a difficult argument to make. I'm sure if you quizzed a number of certified beer dweebs quite a few would list Alaskan.

Judges, based on guidelines (non-hedonistic).

If you want to see the best beer in America based on hype, check out Beer Advocate. Pliny The Younger recently became more hyped than Westvleteren 12!
