We (HBTers that went to Denver) had the opportunity to talk to Stan at the AHA.
He has logged into the site in the days following the conference.
Here's to hoping that he posts here now and again.

I'm really glad Sprecher made the Chicago list. It was an important brewery for me growing up in Milwaukee.

Looked at the Chicago version and I was surprised to see Mad Hatter. This seems like an incredibly average, overly bitter IPA. There was no malt taste at all, just an overwhelming bitter taste from relatively boring hops.

I've had about 8 of those beers and I couldn't disagree with any one of them. They were truly groundbreaking for the craft brew industry.

Stan was a great dude.

I've had all of them and while I'm not a huge fan of some on the list, I agree with Dude that they all deserve to be there for there contributions to advancing the Craft Beer industry.

I thought the list was pretty well composed overall. His comment about Celis is kinda interesting and to me, as it was something I expected to see on the list.

I also expected some fat tire bashing...

One of the next beers we are going to be talking about is Firestone Walker 10, although it was a one off. The combination of understanding the wood contribution and blending should open things up for another round of interesting beers.

And something homebrewers can do. Matt Brynlidson's presentation at NHC was full of great tips - so get a copy if you haven't already.

And, yes, I've been looking around the site when I've had time. I'll look to contribute mostly in general techniques and in ingredients - areas where something I've learned about Belgian brewing can be applied.

Are these in order? While I don't disagree with the top three, I really don't see how any of them don't deserve to be #1 (especially Sam Adams)....I would have a three way tie for first...Actually I read the link and they are in the order of introduction...OK then never mind.

Unfortunately being in Atlanta I can only get 4 of those and have only had 4 of them.

I think I would add:
11. Regional Micro/Craft Brew...this is what most people drink and no matter (almost) where you live there is a local craft brewer that makes and puts out good beer.
The ones I would plug: Abita Brewery, Sweetwater Brewery and Terrapin Brewery.

The order was in when they were released. The Anchor product is the oldest and so the first on the list.
