The Goat Hill Tavern is pretty cool with over 100 beers on tap. Costa Mesa/Newport Beach, CA

This list left out the beer capital of America: Asheville, NC (voted by America in USA Today poll)
Craft beer breweries abound- and I have to say, we're pretty spoiled - when you have the best it's hard to be impressed by anything else. Especially this time of year- these breweries come up with special unique flavors - pumpkin, cinnamon, cloves, dark vanilla stouts. There are too many brew pubs to pick one, but I love the Thirsty Monk and Pisgah Brewery for their organic beers.

Specious, when none in Milwaukee are mentioned. Of course, there are so many............

If I didn't hear it, it wasn't funny.

I came here expecting not to see my favorite pub, the Portsmouth Brewery, only to be pleasantly surprised to see it listed. If you are in the area, it is a great spot and Portsmouth is a charming city with great restaurants and shops.

Ye Old Tap Room, Detroit Michigan. Nothing to write home about. Just a great place to drink good beer.

Been to the Tap Room. Great place.

Ever tried Ashleys out in Ann Arbor? Equally awesome if you're ever out that direction.

I have not been to Ashleys but I will keep it in mind if I'm ever out in A2. Also, Aubreys and Sidetrack in Ypsi are great.

None of the Above seem more than "average."

But, my perspective comes from living in Portland, OR

(Noting, even the pic of the Boston bar features Rogue; where, um, just to go to the source next time, it's a lot nicer).

One mention outside of the NE seems out of touch. Almost every pub in the NW looks more interesting...McMenemins(beer in theaters, golf courses, schools, etc), Deschutes, Bridgeport, Full Sail and above mentioned Rogue just to start and they're breweries not just awsome pubs!

Glad I am not the first person that noticed that.

I just drove by the Rogue headquarters over the weekend, and it is very much NOT in Boston. In fact, it's damn near in the pacific ocean.

Ah, Dead Guy. I would love to get some on site. Too bad I live in TX.

Go back & do it (hiccup) again.......................

No Brickstore Pub in Atlanta? It is arguably one of the better beer bars in the country. I live in Atlanta, but have traveled all over in my quest for hoppy goodness. The Brickstore is definitely tops.

+1 All the other places on this list are well-known, and usually make similar lists -- I've been fortunate enough to visit a few: Monk's definitely stands out.

But the Brick Store (my local too) is a huge omission. #2 beer bar in the country, according to Beer Advocate.

Eulogy beats Monk's cafe hands down.

Hopleaf is a great choice. I'd also add the Three Penney Tap in Montpelier, VT
11:16 AM on 10/05/2011
I'd rather go to Quenchers, the Hopleaf had good beer but the barmen were nasty and not in a good way. I'm in total agreement with the Maproom, they have been an awesome beer bar long before the current trend.

Ebenezer's at #1 is a good call. I would say the only glaring mistake would be not having Brouwers in Seattle on the list.

I just flipped through it pretty quick...were any of these West Coast bars? Brouwers is the best beer geek bar in the country. The bulk of Americas best breweries are on the West Coast. Brouwers has 65 taps and 2 firkins and hundreds of bottles. Also, bragging about the number of Belgians on tap is weird to me because I prefer most belgians to be bottle conditioned. Ah well...I didn't expect much in the way of beer geekery from "The Daily Meal".

Toronado.

The belgian beers on tap at Ebenezer's are pretty money, considering he has Cantillon on tap 99% of the time, which is pretty filthy.
