Zymurgy Readers Select Dogfish Head 90 Minute IPA as the Best Commercially Brewed Beer

Zymurgy is a magazine that is distributed to members of the American Homebrewers Association, so when the publication polls readers about their favorite commercially brewed beer it's worth listening to the results. The 2007 winner for the “Best Commercial Beer in America” is Dogfish Head 90 Minute IPA.

This is the fifth year of the Zymurgy survey, inviting readers to send in a list of their twenty favorite commercially available beers in the U.S. More than 1,100 votes for 618 beers from 293 brewers around the world were received.

In the poll, Sierra Nevada Pale Ale and Stone Arrogant Bastard tied for second. There was a six-way tie for fourth place between Alaskan Smoked Porter, Dogfish Head 60 Minute IPA, Guinness Draught, North Coast Old Rasputin, Schneider Aventinus and Sierra Nevada Celebration Ale.

I discovered Dogfish Head 90 Minute IPA at Ella's Pizza in D.C. and fell in love. Hate to say it, but old Sierra Nevada doesn't hold a candle to this heady brew. This beer is the only reason I'm looking forward to my annual business trip to DC in 2009.

Guess maybe it's time to try to track it down in Northern California!
