Best Beer of 2015


There is so much good beer being brewed across the globe these days. Halleluiah! Here’s a look at my faves from 2015.

This list of best beers of 2015 is in alphabetical order and – as is the case with all my Best of 2015 lists – merely reflects how I chose to spend my time during the year and is comprised of well established and brand new beers available on the market.

Best Beer

Athena | Creature Comforts Brewing Co
Athens, Georgia, USA
Citrus-y German-style wheat beer, Athena is an ideal drink for chilling out on a hot day.
4.5% ABV

Er Boqueron | La Socarrada Cervesa Artesanal De Xativa
Xativa, Spain
If not the best, certainly the most interesting beer of the year. Brewed near Valencia using Mediterranean Sea water, Er Boqueron is literally a beer to savour and a great one to pair with tapas.
4.8% ABV

Gamma Ray | Beavertown Brewery
London, UK
This canned American Pale Ale is a total thirst quencher with tropical fruit notes and a lot of hoppy flavour.
5.4% ABV

Gem | Bath Ales
Bristol, UK
This nicely balanced English ale with a bittersweet finish goes down easy on its own or with a broad range of dishes.
4.1% ABV in cask; 4.8% ABV in bottle

Koshihikari Echigo Beer | Uehara Shuzou Co Ltd, Echigo Beer Pub
Niigata, Japan
Ah. This clean and delicate Japanese lager made with Koshihikari, a super premium short grain rice, is as refreshing as it gets and a smart beer to choose for sushi and Japanese noodle dishes.
5% ABV

Low Country Ambrosia | River Dog Brewing Co
Ridgeland, South Carolina, USA
A honey-sweet America wheat ale, Low Country Ambrosia makes perfect sense for the sultry South Carolina setting where it’s made to be enjoyed.
5.4% ABV

Reclaimed Rye | Creature Comforts Brewing Co
Athens, Georgia, USA
Aged in French oak, this rich and flavourful rye amber is a good one for beery ponderings and for impressing any beer snob acquaintances.
5.5% ABV

Wu Gang Chops the Tree | Pressure Drop
London, UK
So delicious! If you try one beer from this list make it this foraged herb hefewiesse that’s as much a quencher as it is a full-flavoured treat.
3.8% ABV
