Top 10 Beers from the last 6 months

These are the top 10 beers I’ve had (in rank order) in the last 6 months.  No real grading criteria except for the level of enjoyment I had then and the fond memory I have now from each of these beers:

1. Orval (Trappist / Belgian Pale Ale /Wild Yeast) at the A La Nouvelle Hostellerie D’Orval Sprl (Villers-devant-Orval, Belgium) – I rate this beer/location an A++

2. Schneider-Weisse Aventinus (Weizen Bock) at the Brewery‘s Aventinus Fest (Kelheim, Germany) – I rate this beer/location an A++

3. Westvleteren 12 (Trappist / Quadruppel) at the In de Vrede Cafe (Westvleteren, Belgium) – I rate this beer/location an A++

4. Westmalle Trappist Extra (Belgian Pale Ale) at the Cafe Trappisten (Westmalle, Belgium) – I rate this beer/location an A+

5. Chimay Speciale Poteaupre (a Witbier) at the Auberge de Poteaupre (Scourmont, Belgium) – I rate this beer/location an A+

6. Zwick’l Kellerbier (Keller (unfiltered) Bier) at the Naturfreundehaus (Vaihingen, Germany) – I rate this beer/location an A+

7. Weihenstephaner Vitus (Weizen Bock) at the Weihenstephaner Braeustueberl (Freising, Germany) – I rate this beer/location an A

8. Delerium Tremens at the Delirium Cafe (Brussels, Belgium) – I rate this beer/location an A

9.  Handbryggeriet Odin’s Tipple (Russian Imperial Stout) (My Hotel Room) – I rate this beer an A

10.  Antonius Brau (homemade) (Keller (unfiltered) Bier) at the Queidersbach Schlachtfest (Queidersbach, Germany) – I rate this beer/location an A

Every one of these beers is fantastic.  Just check out the ratings if you’d like … ok, a couple couldn’t really get ratings … but trust me, these are 10 of the best beers you’ll get in the world … if you get a chance to try any of them, do it … and on location is even that much better!
