There are two types of beer drinkers: those who care not for quality as much as they do the overall disorienting effects of drinking beer, and those who savor every sip. Their taste buds seek out and identify each fizzy flavor, looking for hoppy notes or hints of citrus. They don’t guzzle; they explore. For those of you who live for the nuances in beer, we are here to help reveal the ones worth savoring... but we can’t do it alone.
Last year, we began our quest to elevate our 2013 list of the 25 Best Craft Breweries to a new level by turning it into the 50 Best Craft Breweries in America with the help of a panel of craft beer experts. This year, we are totally taking it to the people.
We heard your cries and accommodated accordingly, upping our selection of breweries from 120 to over 580 options — the widest range of breweries on our survey yet. From your favorites that made it last year, to new and exciting breweries on the verge of brewing (pun intended) up something special, we are officially asking for your help to declare the best of the best for our 2015 list.
And if our list is still missing your favorite, don’t forget to write it in so we can include.
Now get to voting!
