I read that yesterday in the old fashioned print version of the paper. Its a good article about stouts generally. As for the the tastings portion, I have a sneaking suspicion that more beers from the coasts were chosen for the tastings, since only one beer from the midwest made the top list. But that's nitpicking - it was very solid article in main stream media about beer. Hurray!

We just make better beer out here!

No seriously, I was impressed with the number of west coast beers in there top ten, but then I was thinking that a lot of these breweries will mainly distribute regionally on the west coast, but if they are going to ship their beer far away, that they will skip the middle of the country and go strait to the population centers on the east coast. Where as the midwest brewers might not distribute as much on the east coast, because they have there own population centers to cater to.

Good article though, got me drolling at 8am for a beer!

No matter where in the States (or Canada) they hailed, it's a great article and review of a lot of stouts I haven't tried. Looks like I'll be doing some digging for some of them.

Yeah, I hadn't really planned to make a bottle run tonight...I have a fridge stuffed with beer I thought I wanted to be drinking...but damn a nice stout sounds really good right now.
