Best beers you can drink according to experts

There’s a beer that will suit your taste and preferences, with a lot of breweries from around the world crafting artisan beer. If you’re curious to know more, here are some of the top beers you should try according to experts.

3 Fonteinen Oude Gueuze Cuvee by Armand & Gaston 

Style: Gueze 

ABV: 6%

Brewed in Belgium, this beer is one of the most aromatic beers you can taste. While others may find the blend too strong, the 3 Fontaine is a delicious drink that you can enjoy on a casual night out with friends. However, be wary of the strong taste if you’re not used to drinking beers with a strong taste. 

What the experts are saying:

The first time I shared a 3 Fonteinen Oude Gueuze with my wife years ago, she handed it back and told me it smelled like burnt cat hair. Gueuze, of course, can be an acquired taste with its mashup of minerality, acidity and deep earthy funk.

But this new take on oude gueuze from the best gueuze blender in the business is really something spectacular. Soft lemon and stone fruit notes peek out from a body with just a touch of caramelized malt, while a tightly edited acidity is a constant reminder of just how heavy-handed some American brewers are with their sour beer’. —Jamie Bogner, Editor of Craft Beer and Brewing 

The Alchemist Heady Topper 

Style: Double IPA

ABV: 8%

Brewed in the beautiful city of Stowe, the Alchemist Heady Topper is a strong beer that features a strong, earthy taste. If you want a drink to give you a good, heady rush after drinking, the Alchemist is the right choice for you.

What the experts are saying: 

‘Do we need more lists that include Heady, the venerable Vermont IPA that helped usher in the NEIPA craze? Yes, yes we do. If we’re talking beers you need to try, why not try one that was once considered the most sought-after beer out there? While you may (or may not) get a better beer from The Alchemist’s neighbours in Vermont —Foam, Hill Farmstead— it’s fun to taste a brew that was once the centre of the beer universe. —Cory Smith, beer writer and photographer 

Allagash White 

Style: Witbier

ABV: 5.1%

Brewed in witbier style, the Allagash White is a beer that will give you a taste of Belgian and American blend. What makes this beer special is that it is versatile and goes well with any dish. 

What the experts are saying:

This is probably the most important beer in the history of American craft brewing. If you care about Belgian-American beers, unfiltered brews or fiercely independent business in any way, shape or form, you owe it to yourself to drink White. It also happens to be as tasty, refreshing and versatile as it’s been for the past [two decades]’—Alex Delany, Web Editor at Bon Appetit
