BLR Brewpub & Beer Ratings

John John’s Recommended Brewpubs


Detailed Ratings

This list will be frequently updated whenever possible – it is a time-consuming process. It makes more sense to rank beers by their style and characteristics instead of the brewpub as a whole. Some brewpubs may have one or two stand out brews whereas others may have several more outstanding brews, however it would be unfair to say the brewery with fewer outstanding brews is not worthy of a visit!

Ratings are classed by style – Lagers & Pilsners, Ales, Weiss, Stouts & Porters. At the end of each section, I will include my personal recommendations once all ratings have been populated.

The following characteristics have been used to rate the brews: (Please read my page on “Beer Sampling” to get a better idea of how sampling is done)

  • Appearance
  • Aroma
  • Taste
  • Mouthfeel
  • Overall Rating

Where able, information on ABV (Alcohol By Volume) and IBU (International Bitterness Unit) will be included.
