The label you see pictured here represents the NUMBER ONE beer in the Beer Advocate’s Top 100. You get one point if you’ve ever heard of it, ten points if you’ve actually tasted it. But Trappist apparently makes some really, really tasty brew, because they’ve got 4 of the top 100 spots.
I’ll go further: I’ve never heard of the vast majority of the beers on this list. Let me add this, however: based on what I know of the Beer Advocate (read: they know their shit cold), I’m inclined to trust the list like gospel. Each beer is given a pretty particular score, and there are more detailed comments for each, as well. It’s unlikely that many of these brews are going to be available at your neighborhood Applebee’s, so know-how on how to get them is going to huge.
Does anyone have any first-hand impressions of the beers on this list?
