There are at least 42,800 Beer Stories to tell
Who likes organized lists more than me? Not many, except perhaps for a guy named Jay Brooks. You all know him from his Brookston Beer Bulletin and now the guy who's carrying on Bill Brand's legacy writing at Bottom's Up. He compiles lists of all kinds and recently shared his take on the Top 10 Influential Beer People of the modern era. It's an impressive list and difficult to argue with. Difficult especially when he throws in an honorable mention list which covers a few more handfuls that include some more that you might like for the Top 10. I wouldn't mind seeing more publicans and importers that are largely responsible for influencing the movement, promotion, and ultimate selling of the beer, so I'll just add that to my list of stories to tell.
