Beers of 2016 – Just top 10’s

A little late but I thought I would have a quick listing (for my memory if nothing else) of my favourite beers of 2016 (the only criteria is that I must have first drank them in 2016 so some old favourites don’t make the grade)

Cloudwater appear to have dominated the IPA scene in 2016 with no sign of them letting up.Mikkeller knocking the sours out of the park and finally To Ol putting out great Stouts throughout the year.

But what did you enjoy in 2016? Let me know in the comments, any tasting notes on the beers?
