    Beer baron! Long time listener, first time caller, LOVE THE BLOG! Keep this party goin, and make sure Jumbo Ozaki Nuts and sLim post as much as possible, because they are the celebs whose opinions on beer and art and molitor golf balls I also respect and admire.

    I didn’t see in your recent posts if you addressed it, and apologies if you did and I just overlooked, but a website called First we Feast about a week ago came up with a list of the ’20 most influential beers of all time’. It’s a list that has been panned by some:

    Would be interested to know your take. And, while we know your ranking of best beers, for fun what would you say the list would be of, say, the 10 beers most influential in your career as a beer baron? For me, it would consist of several beers full of awfulness rounded out by beers that opened my world to the taste of taste.
