Doc’s Top 100 Beers What Are Obtainable In Australia!

Here it is: My personal top 100 beer list with all the rare-now-or-impossible-to-find beers removed. It is a straight-forward, no-holds-barred, lip-smackingly-good list of beers and it even comes with an “Obtainability” rating to give you an idea of how easy it is to find here – in Australia (specifically Brisbane, Queensland).

And here’s how the “Obtainability” score works:

1 equals: You see it: buy it! (as you may never see it again)

2 equals: I’ve seen it a couple times in small boutique beer stores

3 equals: It’s in at least one of the major chains (Dan Murphy’s or First Choice)

4 equals: Likely in both of the major chains

5 equals: You’ll find this pretty much everywhere

Other things you’ll find in the list are: Style, Country brewed in, my rating (out of 10 of course), a link to my review of that specific beer, and ABV (Alcohol By Volume).

Even better I actually did the list on an Excel spreadsheet – so if you want a list that you can filter (with a “Had” column to tick off as you go) simply comment below and I will email it to you, how bloody great am I? [pretty bloody great!].

Anyway on to the damn list already!
