RateBeer-Best-Breweries-2019

Every year, RateBeer publishes a list of the the 100 best breweries in the world according to a summary score based on their available reviews. And every year, Hill Farmstead Brewery reigns supreme. The recently published annual list of RateBeer’s 2018 best breweries is no different. Hill Farmstead is still sitting pretty (for the fifth consecutive year!), along with Russian River, Trillium, Cigar City, Tree House and well, here’s the full top 10:

1. Hill Farmstead Brewery (Greensboro, VT)
2. Russian River Brewing (Santa Rosa, CA)
3. Trillium Brewing Company (Boston, MA)
4. Cigar City Brewing (Tampa, FL)
5. Tree House Brewing Company (Charlton, MA)
6. AleSmith Brewing Company (San Diego, CA)

8. New Glarus Brewing Company (New Glarus, WI)
9. Side Project Brewing (Maplewood, MO)
10. Sante Adairius Rustic Ales (Capitola, CA)

No one is going to question those ten breweries being the top of the heap, but it does introduce a few interesting choices we’re honestly surprised about. Founders isn’t top 10. Stone isn’t top 20. Cantillon and Goose Island aren’t in the top 50. Check out the full list of 100 on RateBeer with the button below.

Retro-Video-Game-Puzzle-IF2

We’ve long been obsessed with Things Organized Neatly, the Tumblr, Instagram account, and book that displays collections of items arranged in pleasing ways. It’s the reason we’re hard at work on this puzzle. When finished, the puzzle depicts a collection of retro video games and gaming systems aligned ever so perfectly. Each is made in the USA by the New York Puzzle Company and features original photography from artist Jim Golden. At 1000 pieces, it will put you to work for some time, but when you complete it you can use some puzzle glue and frame it on your wall. Out of chaos comes order, right?
