Zymurgy magazine, the publication of the American Homebrewers Association, has announced the winners of the 18th annual Best Beers in America survey. The association’s members—homebrewers with some of the most discerning palates in the country—passionately voted for their favorite commercial beers and breweries.
Two Hearted Ale from Bell’s Brewery, in Comstock, Mich., was named champion for the fourth consecutive year. In a year of surprises, AHA members’ refined palates remain consistent, yet discerning with new beers joining the top ranks. The annual Best Beers in America results are a time to brew a batch and raise a glass in celebration of the most beloved beers.
