Playboy Uncovers Beer

The February edition of Playboy magazine includes an article called Brew Romance, in which a distinguished panel of fourteen chose their favorite bottled beers in several categories. The article then recounts the results. Here are their top ten choices:

  1. Sierra Nevada Pale Ale
  2. Victory Prima Pils
  3. Ommegang Abbey Ale
  4. Anderson Valley Boont Amber
  5. Sierra Nevada Porter
  6. Brooklyn Black Chocolate Stout
  7. Tröegs Tröegenator Double Bock
  8. Samuel Adams Utopias
  9. Alaskan Smoked Porter
  10. Deschutes Mirror Pond Pale Ale

And there were also a few honorable mentions:


It’s a pretty good list, too. I can’t really quibble with any of the choices, they’re all great beers. Sure, I might have put some above others and there’s a few missing from the list I might have compiled — Russian River’s Pliny the Elder comes to mind. And it’s certainly great to see good beer in such a mainstream magazine as Playboy.
