The 20 Best Craft Beers In The World

Stock quotes in this article: SAM

If you thought there was a lot of beer-drinking during the Superbowl, nothing beats the World Cup.

As World Cup soccer fever sweeps the globe, chances are bars are packed with cheering fans.

Beer is a huge part of the U.S economy.  In the U.S. alone the overall beer industry was worth $100 billion in 2013, according to the Brewers Association.

Of that amount, craft brewing made up $14.3 billion of it.

The widely recognized site touts itself as the most visited source for accurate craft beer information.  Its users are comprised of an independent community of beer enthusiasts who narrowed down the Top 20 best bottles in the world.  

Users rank the beer on various criteria including aroma, appearance, and taste.

Interestingly, the majority of the best craft beers are made in the U.S.A, but many of them are pretty hard to find.  Here is a list of the top 20 craft beers in the world...

Goose Island Bourbon County Stout

20. Goose Island Bourbon County Stout
      Rating 4.24 out of 5

This Imperial Stout is brewed in Chicago at the Goose Island Brewery.

One RateBeer user from Belgium said, "It pours pitch black, syrupy with almost no head," adding, "taste is very heavy on the chocolate, coffee. Very damn tasty but quite fierce with alcohol."
