The American Homebrewer’s Association just released their “2019 Best Beers In America” list. Why should any of us care? Well, because the AHA asked readers of Zymurgy magazine, which all AHA members are subscribed to, what they thought the best beers and breweries in the country are. And considering these are people who love beer so much they’ve decided to brew it in their own homes and read magazines dedicated to the art of making beer, we’re going to go ahead and trust their advice. (That, and the fact that several of the beers and breweries on this list overlap with our own expert coverage.)

Whether you’re all about finding beers perfect for summer or if you’re more of an experiential drinker and need a dope setting to amplify the experience, between us and this list, you’ll have all the best-tasting beers and breweries in the country dialed in.

Coming in on top of the AHA’s list is Bell’s Two Hearted Ale with their third consecutive win. “Receiving this honor once, twice even is incredible,” said Bell’s president and founder Larry Bell. “But a third time? I am speechless and incredibly thankful to the homebrewing community and everyone who has helped make this beer what it is today.” Check out the full list of beers and breweries below or head over to The American Homebrewer’s Association’s website to see the results broken up by state.

🇬🇧🇬🇧Two Hearted Ale is an IPA named for the Two Hearted River in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan Some say the beer also got its name from the title of a famous short story, "Big Two-Hearted River", by Ernest Hemingway Who used the name because of its appeal; however, the geography of the story indicates that Hemingway was really describing a different trout stream, the Fox River near Seney From 2010 to 2016, the American Homebrewers Association rated Bell's Brewery's Two Hearted Ale the 2nd best beer in US. The AHA publishes an annual list of 50 ranking beers in its magazine; Zymurgy and It was ranked the best beer in 2017 taking the award after seven straight years at second The balance of hop flavor, bitterness, malt into a dry, bitter body is an absolute masterpiece and what makes this beer a classic despite being at 7% ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖🇹🇷🇹🇷 Bell's Brewery'nin klasikler arasına giren birası Two Hearted Ale ismini Michigan'daki aynı isimli nehirden alan benchmark niteliğinde bir IPA American Homebrewers Association (AHA) Yani Amerikan Ev Biraciları Derneği 2010'dan 2016'ya bu kadar bu birayı Amerikan'nin en iyi ikinci birası seçmiş.
