Be it formal meetings or casual parties or a some beach parties with friends, can you name a “something in tin can” without which all rendezvous seem but incomplete! Yes, you’re right—its beer we’re talking about (whoa! I can all see you smiling ear to ear)! Anyway, we all know that with each passing day, numerous beer brands are entering and making it big in the market; however, since we don’t want you (especially, the first timers) to form a bad notion about beer by savoring “just another beer”, we’ve come with one whole article discussing the top 10 Beer Companies ever. Take a look—
10. Harpoon Brewery
Founded in 1986, Harpoon Brewery is a Boston-based brewery, and the first brewery in the world to get hold of a permit to manufacture and sell alcohol in Massachusetts. The brewery has on offer a large array of beer including the UFO Raspberry Hefeweizen, the UFO Hefeweizen and UFO White among others. But, our recommendation would be their Harpoon India Pale Ale—a must try if you’re a beer lover!
9. Firestone-Walker Brewery
Founded in 1996, this relatively new microbrewery is a California based company which was named as the Champion Brewery at the “World Beer Cup” championship not once, but thrice—in 2004, 2006 and 2010. We would like to grab this opportunity to recommend their Firestone Pale Ale which, in 2006, had bagged the award of the Best Beer in America, at a poll conducted by the Men’s Journal.
8. Abita Brewing Company
A craft brewery located near the Abita Springs in Louisiana, the brewing company’s Abita Bock was included in the list of Top 10 Spring Beers in 2012 by the famous Fox News. However, if you haven’t yet, you must taste their Abita Root Beer which, instead of being made from high fructose corn syrup, is made from the special sugar cane found in Louisiana.
Founded in 1852, Anheuser-Busch Companies, Inc is an American company with around 13 breweries around the United States. And, it’s this company that is behind your favorite beer Budweiser, Beck’s and Stella Artois. The company also produces a wide array of non-alcoholic beverages, flavored and malt liquors.
6. Blue Moon Brewing Company
One of the brewing companies brewing some of the most outstanding beers in the world, the Blue Moon Brewing Company is most famous for their Belgian-style witbier Blue Moon. This beer has been “en vogue” since its inception in 1995, and is celebrated as of the best beers around. We’d recommend you to drink it with a slice of orange. To know the reason, you’ve gotta try it, dear! Also Read: 9 Reasons Why Beer Is Healthy For Men
5. Chimay Brewery
Finally, we’ve come across a brewery with its roots in Belgium, and not the US. Anyway, due to this brewery’s location inside a trappist monastery, the Scormont Abbey, the beer produced herein is termed as the Trappist Beer, and Chimay Brewery is one of the only 10 brewing companies producing the same!
4. Sierra Nevada Brewing Company
Founded in 1980, Sierra Nevada Brewing Company is among the best breweries producing craft beer in the US. In fact, it is the company’s Pale Ale that has been adjudged as the second best craft beer in the country, after Samuel Adam’s Boston Lager. Not just for their beer, this company bagged the Green Business of the Year title in the 2010 but maintaining a proper work environment and sustainability.
3. Samuel Adams
Brewed by the Boston Brew Company, Samuel Adams is again a master beer brand based in the US. Among the hoards of alcoholic drinks that it produces, it is their seasonal production that wins the bet each time—Cold Snap, Summer Ale, October Fest and Winter Lager being those! Try it seasonally to savor their utmost pleasure!
It is a Dublin-based brewery founded way back in 1759, and has still been maintaining its standard and goodwill. Among all their dry stout variations, we recommend their Guinness foreign Extra Stout which is sold internationally to all the well known places and countries.
Like always, we’ve saved the best for the last. Yuengling is one of the oldest breweries in the US which is still putting up a jolly good fight against all its contemporaries! It is needless to say that this company too manufactures a huge array of beers; however, if we have to recommend you one, it’d definitely be their Traditional Lager!
