What Is the Best Beer?
From light beers to stout beers, the wide variety of suds available in America is sure to please every palate. But which ones are the best beer? The question has become more and more common as brewers and brewing companies continue to expand their offerings. In fact, the list of top rated beers on BeerAdvocate has more than doubled since 2023.
Many of those newer brews are more complex and geared toward more adventurous drinkers, but there are still plenty of classic styles that will suit just about anyone’s palate. For example, Oskar Blues Dale’s Pale Ale is a light and refreshing craft beer that many people consider to be a “blue-collar” beer. And Peace Tree Brewing’s Blonde Fatale is another light beer that has gotten a lot of attention for its subtle flavor profiles.
Other classics that have earned a reputation for themselves include pilsners, blonde ales, stout beers, porters, and Belgian-style dubbels. In addition, a surprisingly diverse range of specialty beers are also gaining popularity, including high-acidity beers, barrel-aged beers, and sour beers.
There are even some well-known brand names that still stand out among the crowd of options, including Budweiser. The so-called “King of Beers” is a classic pale lager that’s known for its clean taste and crisp finish. Whether you’re looking for a drink to enjoy while watching the Rockies turn icy-blue or just a decent brew to wash down a burger, Budweiser is a solid choice.
