I'd be interested to see a similar UK vote, but here's what the readers of Beer and Brewing magazine in America voted as the best beers over there. Sort of interesting that in spite of all the beer style developments over there, the top 6 is:
  1. Sierra Nevada Pale Ale (2)
  2. Bell’s Brewery Two Hearted IPA (1)
  3. Russian River Pliny the Elder IIPA (4)
  4. Guinness Extra Stout (5)
  5. Samuel Adams Boston Lager (25)
  6. Founders All Day IPA (11)
Presumably simply as they are distributed nationwide.  All 50:

Looks like Guinness Extra is easier to get over there than it is here.

Has anyone tried the pliny the elder or the two hearted?

They get great write ups. Sierra Nevada is ok - probably better the nearer you get to the brewery?

I like SNPA, it's solid. My mate had Bell's Two Hearted in America and really liked it. I did the Clib's Half-Hearted as a result.
