I just made a trade with an awesome forum member for some Boston area beers. Among the batch was Heady Topper (which I've not tried before), and like a crack addict looking for his next fix, I must have more. I've been on a quest to at least try all of the "acclaimed beer" list. There aren't too many beers on those lists that I think are as good as they say (look at any top 10 and I've tried most) but Pliny is a great beer. My philosophy is to taste everything at least once and decide yourself. Is Younger worth the hype? Is Westy? The economics of supply and demand can influence perception unfortunately.
