That list is bunk. It didn't even mention Burt Grant or Grant's Pale Ale. Burt Grant started the first microbrewery post-prohibition and almost singlehandedly plotted the roadmap for how to create a brewpub.

The curious can still visit his original mashtun at Yakima Craft Brewing. When Burt started his brewery no one was making small brewing equipment. He had to have something hand made in Portugal I believe.

Numbers 1 and 2 are a given, possessing the rare combination of both decent taste and wide availability. (But I'll take #1 over #2 anyday.) I usually look for something new when out shopping, sometimes being pleasantly surprised and sometimes getting something worse.

I'll look for Grant's Pale Ale, but I don't usually like them as much as other beers. Grant's Imperial Stout sounds good but it doesn't look like it is still being produced. I know the son that was part of the father/son team that first started the Palo Alto Brewing Co. in 1983. They opened a year after Grant.

I have enjoyed most of the products from Triple Rock Brewery (formerly Roaring Rock Brewery) that opened in 1985. They cosponsored the first iteration of the Berkeley Beer Festival around 1993.

Yakima Brewing and Malting ceased operations some time ago after Burt Grant sold the brewery and the new owners plowed the business into the ground. The list isn't "The 25 Best Beers" it was "The 25 Most Important American Craft Beers Ever Brewed". By that definition, Grant's is, by default, #1 as his was the first Craft Beer brewed. It was also pretty good.

Seconded. I have a great memory of sitting at the tap for my samples after the brewery tour in Austin, and up walks Pierre. The tour guide saw his approach and had a glass of White ready for him. He was a personable small statured man and sat and chatted with our group for quite a while.....

I had a little side discussion with Eustace that reminded me that Grant's was not the first microbrewery, but rather the first Brewpub...or the first recognized by the ATF that I'm aware of. Nonetheless, I stand by my assertion that Grant's beer should be on the list. Maybe not #1, but at least top 5.
