Looks like I'm at 28... give or take a Cantillon or Russian River that snuck by.

I prefer Weihenstephaner Korbinian to both of those

BeerAdvocate made a change to their rating system last week and lot of beers changed places or were bumped out of the top 100.

You've always had to write a full review of a beer on BA in order for your rating to count towards the beer's BA rating. Last week they started including users 'Had' ratings in the formula.

I'm not really sure I like the change, but it gets more people involved in the ratings which is probably a good thing in the long run.

I am pretty sure I am at 33. Didn't think I would have had that many, and that is without the Hill Farmstead beers that I missed when you had them.

74 of those 100 were over 8%. Seems like it can't be a good beer anymore unless it is an imperial aged in bourbon barrels.

#3 BOurbon Barrel Aged Vanilla Bean Darklord

This is a crock of shite and exemplifies everything i dislike about Beer Advocate.

These rankings should be for beers that are actually bottled whether it be year round or seasonal. I know form my times going to Dark Lord Day a few years back, this was never and will never be bottled. I remember guys going there any getting tasting cups of this to pour into swing top bottles to take home.

I don't know why but fanaticism over beers like this just kind of piss me off. Most of those rankings are inflated for trading purposes many times. People review it if its local to drive up the rating, get it pub, so people want to trade for it. How many different versions of the Hunuaphu's stout from cigar city can you have? There is like 4 up there. Its one of the main reasons i got away from BA.

and there are now WAY TO frickING MANY bourbon barrel, wine barrel, maple infused, bacon cured, super yeast fermented, double chocolate, bat shite coffee roasted, super hop strain, and spice infused beers. make something simple and make it right. no need for all this crap.

I've had 35 of the top 100

And a good number of those 26 not above 8% are sour beers. There are not a lot of everyday beers on that list.

The only one I've had is the Everett Porter, I missed out on the rest as well.

I did a Russian River tasting one time, but I can't remember exactly which of the sours I tried. I've "checked in" to Supplication, Damnation, and Sanctification... but I'm almost positive I've had Consecration at some point... and Beatification as well.

Same with Cantillon... I know at the two Zwanze Day events I've had plenty, but I don't always remember exactly which ones.

Oh well... there's always another good beer to drink.

of the beers on that list i could drink "daily" there are maybe like 4 - 5, but i wasn't looking closely. Hopslam and Sculpin IPA. I'd shank someones grandma for a case of Sculpin right now.

Eh, nothing wrong with breweries trying to do new things. It just shouldn't be on the "top 100" list when it's only available once per year. Need a top 100 accessible beers list.

I love trying the new stuff, but I wonder at what point do these breweries struggle to find a balance. It seems there is a constant flow of new seasonals, specials brewed, etcs that it's easy to forget about the everyday brewed stuff. At what point does your selling of the everyday stuff flatten or decrease to make it non beneficial?

And in some cases the beers that are released are in such limited quantity and proximity you'll never get it. One such beer i recall is Kate The Great from Plymouth Brewing.

a good example would be Dogfish Head. They seemingly have more special releases and limited seasonals than actual year round brews.

I also recall Magic Hat eating a total shite burger on some special beer they made with radishes. I bought some beer at a big beer store in Athens and they were literally giving away bottles of this crap for .10...Yes 10 CENTS. we got a bottle, then poured it in the sink. It was truly putrid.
