The Hottest 100 (Beers)

So the Hottest 100 Beers list has been put together by ‘The Local Taphouse’  You can have a read of it here  .

It steals the Triple J hottest 1000 concept and applies it to beer. Punters are asked to give their top five beers, votes are tallied and away you go.

 It’s not a bad list, certainly it’s sort of a mix of best beers and most popular beers.  Distribution seems to have a huge effect on the results. Little Creatures (which has won twice, and came second this year) is a good beer, but by no means the best beer in Australia.  

Here at Tipples we are all over the list, We have reviewed 13 of the beers in the list (with about another 5 or 6 tasted but not yet written up/published.  And how do our thoughts gel with that of the general public, well not too bad actually, apart from Stone & Wood and Beast IPA I’d say they are right on the money.

Oh and yeah I did vote and my choices came in  6th, 7th, 10th,  49th and 56th

  2. Plenty of the beers on the list come from Victoria, don’t they? The Vic/Melbourne pub and brewing scene really sh1ts on Sydney’s (though they’re trying with Small Bars) Makes it hard for us north of the border. Still of the top 10, we haven’t tried Kooinda, Feral Hop Hog or Hawthorn Pale Ale only. Like you – many tasted not all reviewed.
