I'm surprised Stone isn't on there. They must be creeping up on Harpoon fairly quickly. Wikipedia pegs their 2008 estimated production at 88,000 barrels and I bet they have grown at a pretty fast clip over the last two years.

Shiner Bock doesn't count as a craft brew to me, but OK. Interesting. I've never even heard of Boulevard.

they produce some great beers. worth seeking out. not sure what kind of styles you like but they make two great saisons, the brettanomyces and tank 7.

I don't mind Shiner Bock - I just don't think of it as a craft brewer. If Spoetzl is a craft brewer, then so is Yeungling (my opinion).

More of my opinion - Matt is not really a craft brewer either (again, my opinion). Same class as Spoetzl and Yeungling - regionals.

Thanks for sharing.

I will second the opinion that Boulevard is very overrated. Again my opinion, but after heading to MO for a wedding last year and sampling everything they had I thought it sucked.

I also am surprised Stone hasn't eclipsed #10 yet.

No love for my local brewery? Curious as to what beers you've had from BLVD. On top of the regular offerings they make some great seasonals, and their Smokestack series is amazing!
