    They got the one in Asheville, NC (Thirsty Monk) and one of the two in Raleigh, NC (Busy Bee) spot on....the other one in Raleigh (Brewmasters) is questionable though in my book...good beer, but bar leaves much to be desired.

    Thanks for the link.

    ^ I agree that Brewmasters was less than impressive. Service was slow despite it not being crowded, and the bar has no atmosphere at all.

    The beer was okay, but I wasn't blown away by it.

    Busy Bee and Thirsty Monk are both awesome.

    I've been telling people to get to Armsby Abbey in Worcester, MA since they opened. They're a great place to grab some locally produced grub and a few beers. It's nice to see them on the list.
    I am old enough and wise enough to know that I dont know what Im doing.

    The Portland recommendations are pretty solid too. I am not sure why Bailey's made the list though. It is fairly nondescript other than being across the street from one of the coolest breweries in the city

    Glad to see my buddy's place APEX on this list! Need to get back up there soon.

    Yes, the Bay Area is pretty well represented, but I would have expected to see Magnolia in San Francisco there.
    Blatantly biased in favor of Santa Cruz Bikes, Enve Composites, E.13, and The Hive. Just sayin'.

    I'd go so far as to say Apex has the best tap list in the city. There are usually more must try beers than I can put down in a night.

    I can vouch for the Falling Rock Taphouse. Great beer selection every time I've been there...

    It would seem I have never been to any place on the list. I am surprised that Brouwers in Freemont didn't make the list.

    i've been to monks cafe and eulogy in philly. there are more in philly on the list i'll have to try.

    eulogy has a "sister" bar a few blocks away, same owners, slightly smaller beer selection, but waaaaaaay less crowded. less food on the menu too.

    No doubt...60+taps and 300 bottles should get at least honorable mention...

    i'm also surprised that Naja's Place isn't on there. 80-100 taps at any given time. upwards of 500 bottles. right in the marina in redondo beach. live music on weekends.

    Agreed, except you have a few too many and then have to stumble out into LoDo. And then hate everything. Ev-er-y-thing.

    Yeah. LoDo was way better back when it was burned out buildings and winos.
