We talked here about the most overrated beer in the world the other day and it got me to thinking about the other side of the coin – which beer doesn’t get the accolades it deserves?
After mulling it over a bit, I’ve broken it into two categories: Beers that are widely available but lack buzz, and beers that are local treasures that everyone would love if they could only get a taste.
For the first category, I could see a beer like Samuel Smith’s Oatmeal Stout – a beer Scott at the Brew Club says “hides in plain sight” on the shelf. Perhaps we just take this legend for granted.
For the “local hero” category, I’m sure you have a beer of two that you think would achieve the cult status enjoyed by the likes of Pliny the Elder if folks could only get a taste. I think this goes for my pals over at Manor House Brewing and their Cannonball Reserve. I can’t wait to get another taste of that stuff!
So how about you? What beer would you put on a pedestal in place of one of the over-hyped brews we discussed the other day? What beers do you think deserve more attention and recognition than they currently get?
