Well, If the internet says it's true...........

Most people my age will acknowledge that everything on the internet is true regardless of the source or how outlandish the claim is.



If information comes out of those tubes and into your eyes, who are you to question it?

With that, I would like to announce that Flossmoor Station is currently winning at the internet and at beer according to RateBeer.com. They just released their 2008 RateBeer Best, and according to them we nearly are.

In the category of Top 100 Beers in the World, we come in at #60 for Wooden Hell and #98 for Sarge.

In the Best Beers in the World by Style, Wooden Hell ranks #5 for Strong Ales (which includes Barley Wine, English Strong Ale, American Strong Ale, and Old Ale.)

In the category of the BEST BREWERS IN THE WORLD we are #24. IN THE WORLD. (RateBeer note* (The total number of brewers in our contest is 5,836. The 100 listed represent the top 1.7% of all brewers -- the creme de la creme or[sic] world brewing; a greater percentage of the population qualifies as genius for comparison.))

And then Finally, but not least we are the #4 best brewpub ever. In North America.

But like I said, you read it on the Internet so it has to be true and 100% accurate. So good job us!

Pretty great representation by the brewers of the "flyover" Midwest: Not just Flossmoor, but also Goose, Floyds, Founders, Great Lakes, Bell's, etc. And it seems to me Flossmoor is first among those brewers with no bottling, only on-premises and limited draft. Think of what could happen once that bottling line starts up!

Congratulations, that's fantastic.

Of note though, doesn't the Pacific NW seem highly under represented?

this just founds my thinking that ratebeer people are retarded...

98???

It should be like... top 10...
sarge is what beer should be... when properly aged... it's a little bit tastier than pete's ba beers imo...

Of course it's true. Some of your finest clientele (both in taste and in appearance) are RateBeerians! Seriously - Once your bottles start getting shipped (by traders) around the country, the numbers will grow even higher.
