The blogger over at The Drunken Polack had an interesting idea: Name your top five favorite craft beers of all time. Do it quickly, don't overthink it and don't revise your answer.
Here's what I came up with, in no particular order:
Deschutes Mirror Pond Pale Ale
Deschutes The Dissident
Russian River Damnation
I noticed I neglected all of the great dark beers out there. That probably has something to do with it being a hot July day. I also struggle with the complete lack of Durango beers. I don't intend that as a slight to our local brewers, who make many fine beers. That's just what I thought up in about 30 seconds.
What is your top 5? Please leave a comment.
