Nominate Beers For The Best Craft Beer of 2012 Poll

Happy ThanksgivingWe are in the final stretches of 2012, and we would like some help from our loyal readers in nominating beers for our Best Craft Beer of 2012 Poll coming up in a few weeks. We have a short list of our own nominations, but feel free to correct us, agree or disagree with our initial picks.

Essentially, please nominate a beer that was new to market in 2012.  Here are some tips in nominating:

  • Did it start getting bottled in 2012 (Bell’s Black Note)? Add it.
  • Is it a beer that’s new to you, ie: Kern River Citra? Don’t add it.
  • Has it been piloted for years at your local breweries tap room, but in 2012 is making it to local bars or started getting bottled? Add it.
  • Has it been bottled for years, but got a new label and name? Maybe, ask the group?

Please put your nominees in the comment section below.  We will check in ourselves with comments, so stay tuned.
