Choosing a “best of” list is difficult and regardless of the quality of choices, someone is going to cry foul when they don’t see their favorite listed. This list is not based on any formula for determining the best beers or even based on things like tasting notes or reviews. It’s just my personal list and the beers that stood out to me in the past year. With that, I give you my top 12 beers of 2012.
