Vermont and Colorado Breweries Top Untappd’s Highest Rated Breweries


It should come as no surprise that Colorado breweries rank amongst the highest when comparing the best breweries in the industry. Such was the case once again when social beer app Untappd released it’s most recent update on the top rated breweries in the country.

While we generally don’t give a rat’s ass about rating beer, it’s still pretty cool to see Colorado kicking ass nationally and in a pretty significant way. To be considered for the list, a brewery had to have at least 1000 ratings within the app, and have at least 5 beers in their portfolio. Additionally, Untappd’s list was based off averages of ratings from Untappd’s own arbitrarily created rating system, with various weight placed on top beers blah blah blah, let’s find out which breweries are awesome.
