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++
5. Chimay Speciale Poteaupre (a Witbier) at the Auberge de Poteaupre (Scourmont, 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!
