Several of my favorite breweries are no longer in business or bought up and rebranded. They are definitely in the all time list but certainly not in the list of current faves.

Stones, DFH, Three Floyds, Rochefort.....haven't had enough breweries I REALLY like to give a full top 10.

I mean Avery, Schlafly, Sierra nevada are decent but nothing I would put in a top 10 for me at least.

I couldn't think of 4 more to list off the top of my head, Darrell. I am sure when I put some thought into it I can think of at least 4 more.

Default Re: Top Ten Favorite Breweries of All Time

Great idea Darrell. This also gives me more brews to look at as I can sample various beers from the breweries. I wish I had a list at the moment but hopefully by this time next year I will.
