EvilEgg: IPAs are a plague upon the land. Now there is nothing inherently wrong with IPAs, it's just that craft brewers want to make them to the exclusion of all else.

IPAs taste like the inside of a dogs asshole.

abhorrent1: List contains a Saison, therefore the whole thing is invalid.

Is there a list for all saisons?

Me, thought I would see Rasputin for the Russian imperial stout. Or whatever that Jesus one is called.

I love IPAs. I love the taste. I love the piney taste. It's like irrumare from a larch.

Hey, look, it's a lager!  Well, kind of, sort of, not really.  Still, how did a real beer slip in there?

The best type of IPA is Pine-Sol.

Otherwise, impressive list.  Russian Imperial Stout high on the list?  Yes.
Weistephaner weiss bier?  Yes.
Celebrator as the best doppelbock?  It's fantastic; I prefer Salvator, but no complaint.

Groupon boob job: Everyone should just drink what they like, and lists like this are nothing but subjective opinion. However, I've been brewing beer for a little under 30 years. I've traveled through Europe and the US, always drinking local stuff. So I'll offer my educated and experienced opinion on the most egregious parts of the list.

Russian Imperial Stout
Two big problems:
1. This list starts terribly because they have the history of the beer wrong! It was exported to the court of Catherine the Great, NOT Peter the Great.
2. If you're making a list of the best beers of specific categories, then your #1 selection should NOT be a beer which contains adjunct flavoring ingredients that are not true to the original style (vanilla beans in this case.)
Personal Favorite: Tod Mott's "Kate the Great" (now brewed as Tod the Lesser)

New England IPA:
NO NO NO. The history they give about an IPA is 100% false. It's often repeated, but is not true.
Anyhow, Heady Topper is highly overrated. It's not even The Alchemist's best IPA ( I would personally give that title to "Focal Banger" a can of which I am about to open right now.) The best NEIPAs are brewed by Treehouse. Hands down, no argument.

It pains me to agree with this one. I'm a Belgian beer fan, and I have been all around Belgium. As much as I'd like to argue for Fantome, Hill Farmstead is making some really outstanding beers, especially in this category.

American Pale Ale:
NO. The beer they selected is NOT a pale ale. Beer categories are there for a reason.

Milk Stout:
NO. Another myth passed off as truth. Workers were not pouring milk into beer.

German Pilsner:
Just stop. We get it; people have a boner for Hill Farmstead. There are dozens of actual German Pilsners, from Germany, that are better. This is laughable.

Cream Ale:
This is not a Cream Ale by definition. They should be no more than 5.5% ABV.

Last time I checked, Boston is not within 30 miles of the Cologne, Germany, city limits. And having had Trillium's Kolsch, this ranking is just plain wrong.

My personal opinion of the best beer in the world, YMMV:  Aventinus

You didn't start your post with "well akshually " so you owe all of us a beer.
