“The best beers of 2020 were not consumed amongst friends, shoulder-to-shoulder inside packed bars and breweries, as they should’ve been. Instead, they were consumed at home, presumably during Zoom happy hours and, probably, at a higher rate in early November. 2020 has changed where we drink (and buy) beer but it did not change that Americans still love beer with hops, slow a booming craft lager selection or stem the tide of low-ABV craft beers pouring from more and more brew halls.
To determine the best beers of 2020, we leaned on the experts: brewers, beer bar owners and beer journalists. Here’s to 2021 hopefully bringing opportunities to enjoy beers in-person with friends again. How many of these 46 beers have you had?” – Ryan Bower, Gear Patrol
