2013 Zymurgy Magazine’s 50 Best Beers in America

If Weblog beers strives to do one thing it is to make it easier for you to find and drink the best beers in the world. Zymurgy magazine has made it easy for us to help you do just that, so copy and paste the Zymurgy magazine’s 50 best beers in the U.S. into your smart phone and use it to check them off one by one.

Zymurgy magazine’s provides this annual list of the best commercial beers in America. The American Homebrewer’s Association publishes the magazine, who conducts a poll of its members each year asking for their favorite beers. And though the results sometimes overlap a bit with the annual list put out by  RateBeer and Beer Advocate, this list tends to skew a bit more towards easier to find mass-market beers. Helping you to become a first class beer snob.
