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)
7. Three Floyds Brewing Company (Munster, IN)
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.

In a world where gadgets are judged on how well they do their jobs despite being available in the smallest packages possible, the Hunt23 Ultra Compact Flashlight reigns supreme. They took all the life-proof features of the incredibly bright Hunt22 (iceproof / smashproof / waterproof / fireproof) and upgraded the titanium body with a tiny pry bar on the back that can be used as a flathead screwdriver or to open boxes, bottles, bags and cans. It’s also TSA-compliant so you don’t have to worry about traveling with it. This flashlight is the EDC tool you’ve been missing.
