The title: 6 best beers for this fall

Later it goes from the 6 best to...
Here are a few of [Stan] Hieronymus' [author of "Brew Like a Monk" and the editor of Realbeer.com] picks that any true beer lover should have on his radar:
  • Fuller's: Vintage Ale
  • Anchor Brewing: Our Special Ale
  • Sierra Nevada: Celebration
  • Affligem Brewery: Affligem Noel
  • Brooklyn Brewery: Brooklyn Black Chocolate Stout
  • Great Divide Brewing Company: Hibernation Ale

I'm sure Stan has a bigger list with more regionals and it just got edited down by the author. It's gotta be hard for most people to get all of these beers.

Holiday seasonals are not my fave but I do concur with Sierra Nevada: Celebration.

obviously CNN's list has a liberal agenda. When will Fox News be releasing their fair and balanced beer list?

Does Halliburton make a beer?


It's actually Fortune magazine's content.

Yes they do but the hop oil spills are just awful.

Fortune is in cahoots with CNN Money. There, I worked the word "cahoots" into my vocabulary for the day.
