Bruce and I were enjoying an excessive quantity of Spaten Marzen yesterday, and the conversation turned to beer, as it so often does. Gazing down a line of 85 taps, we discussed which brews sucked, which were great, and which were totally indispensable (and therefore should be most frequently dispensed).
Eventually, the dreaded question was asked. “If you were stranded on a desert island with only 10 beers, which ones would you pick?”
Now assuage the more literal-minded readers, this is a purely hypothetical question that does not take into account temperature, storage, or an other external factor. We’ll just assume everything is perfect, every time.
Mark’s top 10:
- Tucher Bajuvator Doppelbock
- Spaten Muenchner Hell
- Warsteiner Dunkel
- Pilsner Urquel
- Saku Baltic Porter
- Southern Tier Phin and Matt’s Extraordinary Ale
- Sam Smith Oatmeal Stout
- Delirium Tremens
- Great Divide Titan IPA
- Fuller’s ESB
For tomorrow, I’ll try to get Bruce off his lazy ass and post his list. As always, I’m eager to hear your choices as well. Even if they’re not as good as mine.
