Four grown men were in that Beetle.
Here it is, our fourth and final piece of the BeerMenus 2016 Roundup series.
We think we saved the best for last. Below are the most popular beers of 2016, broken out by where in the US the beer was brewed: East, Midwest, or West.
Full disclosure: we love a lot of these beers. But our palates didn't make any decisions in regards to the list. We determined the rankings by looking at unique BeerMenus page views for each beer.
While we weren't too surprised by most beers on the list, there were a couple that left us flabbergasted. There was one big ol' Stunner in particular.
Congrats to all breweries on the list, and thanks for making these awesome beers part of 2016.
I hesitate to think how many beers the BeerMenus team consumed in 2016.
But despite the one or two beers all that entailed, everybody here at BeerMenus had one single beer that spoke to them more than the rest. Below you'll find everyone's top beer from 2016.
If you're one of the breweries who make these great beers, thank you! And if you agree with our choices, then cheers to you!
We were busy in 2016. 25 million people visited BeerMenus to find great beer. 50,000 new beers were added to our database. 9,000 new businesses joined the BeerMenus community. These numbers are bananas!
Yet through it all, a number of businesses stood out for the insane amount of traffic driven to their page. Below you'll find the 10 businesses on BeerMenus that received the most page views in 2016.
These businesses are not in any particular order, nor are they all clustered in one geographic area. From Manhattan to Wichita, sports bars to liquor stores, this list proves that craft beer is, truly, a national game.
In fact, the only consistent fact about these businesses is that update their BeerMenus page often.
Congrats to the businesses below on an awesome year, and good luck to all in 2017!
According to the Brewer's Association, we're now up over 5,000 breweries in the United States. That's bonkers. As an end of the year exercise, we combed through our data to reveal the top-10 most-searched breweries on BeerMenus during 2016. Check them out below, and be sure to check back throughout the week to see our parts 2, 3, and 4 in our 2016 Roundup.
Below you’ll find the top 10 most-searched winter beers on BeerMenus. The take home: big Imperial Stouts—barrel-aged and otherwise—dominate the list, while a couple old holiday standbys are holding on strong.
Ahhhhh, Gowanus. Feel the shipping history and manufacturing heritage. Breathe deeply the gentrification and the toxic waste. Pay $2,600 a month for a one-bedroom apartment abutting a 1.8 mile canal that’s still home to raw sewage runoff and 10-foot layer of toxic sludge throughout its entirety.
Ya know, Urban Eden.
BUT, Gowanus has a ton of bright spots. Among them: a killer beer scene. One of the best places is Strong Rope Brewery, owned and operated by Jason Sahler.
In this Q&A we discuss group rates, team training, as well as what we are doing at BeerMenus to get our whole team to Certified Beer Server level.
