The Top 5 Domestic Beers

by: Frankie Cotten

Over the years, I have had to work my up the beer quality list. All the way from my first Budweiser to my transition to beers like Siera Nevada and Sam Adams. It's been a pretty rough journey. Full of the most gruesome, watered down beers to the flavorsome varieties of wheats and distinct flavors of brewed hops. So to further aid you in your journey checked out this list of the top domestic beers garanteed to quince your thirst:



#1 Sierra Nevada Pale Ale (unchanged from 2007)

"It has a deep amber color and an exceptionally full-bodied, complex character. Generous quantities of premium Cascade hops give the Pale Ale its fragrant bouquet and spicy flavor. "

-Sierra Nevada


#2 Sam Adams Boston Lager (unchanged from 2007)

"This deep amber color lager is brewed using only four ingredients and traditional brewing methods for a full, smooth body."

#3 Sam Adams Seasonal (unchanged from 2007)

Noble Pills - "A pilsner brewed with 5 Noble hop varieties. It is golden in color, clear, and in the style of a Bohemian Pilsner. Brewed with all 5 Noble hops for a distinct hop character and fresh taste. Deep golden in color with a citrusy hop aroma, Samuel Adams Noble Pils is a traditional Bohemian Pilsner. It replaced the White Ale as the Spring seasonal. Available late January through March."



#4 New Belgium Fat Tire Amber Ale (unchanged from 2007)

"Named in honor of our founder Jeff's bike trip through Belgium, Fat Tire Amber Ale marks a turning point in the young electrical engineer's home brewing. Belgian beers use a far broader palette of ingredients (fruits, spices, esoteric yeast strains) than German or English styles. Jeff found the Belgian approach freeing. Upon his return, Jeff created Fat Tire and Abbey Belgian Ale, (assuming Abbey would be his big gun). He and his wife, Kim traveled around sampling their homebrews to the public. Fat Tire's appeal quickly became evident. People liked everything about it. Except the name. Fat Tire won fans with its sense of balance: toasty, biscuit-like malt flavors coasting in equilibrium with hoppy freshness."

#5 Shiner Bock (up from #6 in 2007)

"Bock reflects the tradition of genuine Bavarian beers as a brew only a craftsman like Kosmos Spoetzl, trained in the "Old Country," could bring to life. With its deep amber color, distinctive rich flavor and full body, Shiner Bock demonstrates the care of a handcrafted brewing process to bring forth a mellow taste free of the bitter aftertaste found in many micro, specialty and imported beers. Just think of it as Shiner smooth."
