The Fraters Libertas Beer Ratings have now been updated to reflect recent activity. The list now includes ratings of over four-hundred beers from twenty-six different countries around the world. Among American brews, there are now ratings for beers from twenty-seven states. Which means there are still twenty-three states not represented in the ratings.
In order to correct this imbalance and provide equal representation for the entire country, my 2010 goal is to try to rate a beer from each of the twenty-three states currently absent from the list. It's an ambitious goal as I'll have to average two new states a month to achieve it. I'm not even sure if there are beers from all fifty states available. Preliminary research on the 'net proved inconclusive.
Here's the list of states that I need to hit in 2010. If you know of a brewery in a particular state or if you have a suggestion for the best beer to rate from that state, please drop me a note.
