After reading an article in the LA Times today about sour beers (with major props to Lost Alley's Tomme Arthur), I got to thinking. Which of our local breweries make the best beers. Now, because beer is a wonderfully complex thing, there's no way to compare on beer with another on the same level. So instead, let's compare beer styles.
Best IPA (double or "San Diego" IPA included)
Best Pale Ale
Best Belgian-style Beer
Best "Gonzo" Beer (that is, a beer that's incomparable to anything else, like Oerbier or Arrogant Bastard)
