What is the best beer brewed with Great Lakes water?
Outside Magazine recently released a list of the top 10 canned beers of 2012.
The magazine claims these as the best of 100 brands sampled. Apparently they were sampled at once and by very few judges. How else to explain the impaired judgment resulting in a selection containing only two beers brewed in Great Lakes states: Sly Fox Pikeland Pils from Pottstown, Pa., and Sixpoint Resin Ale in Brooklyn, N.Y.
And those two aren’t even in the Great Lakes watershed.
Sorry Outside. Every beer lover – at least those who read Echo – should know that the best beer is brewed from the waters comprising or draining into 20 percent of the world’s fresh surface water.
So here’s the challenge, Echo readers: What is the best beer made from water derived from within the Great Lakes watershed?
If you’re not exactly sure where the watershed is, check out the map above. Click it to enlarge. Note the binational nature of the watershed.
In the comment section below, make your case. Include the name of the beer, the brewer and where it is brewed.
