McKenzie's Hard Cider

The first of 2 cider makers in the top 10. I thought this was the year of hard soda?

9. Ciderboys

Ciderboys Cider

A cider producer that loves finding innovative flavor combinations for cider. What's not to like?

8. Crook & Marker

Crook & Marker

This was the year of hard seltzer, so seeing a seltzer producer in the top 10 isn't particularly surprising. It's not beer, but the people want it!

7. Trillium Brewing Company


Boston's finest, Trillium changed the beer scene in Boston with their tiny brewery in Fort Point. Then again when they opened a big ol' facility in Canton. Then again when they opened multiple beer gardens and venues across the city. They are inseparable from the beer culture of their city, and consistently churn out phenomenal beer of all styles.

6. Toppling Goliath Brewing Co.


You've gotta be doing something right when people are willing to travel to Decorah, Iowa to wait in line for your beer. That's no slight on Decorah or Iowa, it's just that it's 3 hours from Des Moines and 5 hours from Chicago. Long way to go, but the stouts and IPAs are certainly tasty once you make it.

5. Other Half Brewing Company

Other Half

The darlings of the canned IPA game, they made waiting in line for beer a sport...or at least a group Instagram binge.

4. Interboro Spirits & Ales


Brooklyn based brewery and distillery, founded by a beer industry veteran, cranking out top notch IPA's, lagers, and more. We've been friends since day one, so we're glad to see that folks are seeking them out!

3. 450 North Brewing Company

450 north

Slushie-gate. 'Nuf said.

2. Hill Farmstead Brewery

450 North

A perennial chart topper and a brewery selected best in the world more times than I can count, it's no surprise to see them in this position. They're absolute masters of the craft.

1. Singlecut Beersmiths


An NYC favorite propelled, no doubt, by the banner year they had taking over what used to be Schmaltz in upstate New York. That purchase and growth definitely jumped them a few pegs up on their annual barrelage and folks are scooping it up every chance they get.
