Stat Attack: The Stat Strikes Back

So the other week it was your top ten UK and Ireland Breweries. I thought this time it would be good to extend this over Europe. So…

What are your top 10 European, but not UK and Ireland Brerweries?

Brewery Beers Rate Country
Brouwerij Huyghe 5 4.00 Belgium
Ca’ del Brado 6 3.95 Italy
Omnipollo 26 3.95 Sweden
Van Moll 6 3.82 Netherlands
Lervig Aktiebryggeri 13 3.78 Norway
To Øl CPH 22 3.78 Denmark
Bierbrouwerij de Koningshoeven - La Trappe Trappist 7 3.76 Netherlands
Põhjala 19 3.74 Estonia
O/O Brewing 6 3.73 Sweden
Brouwerij Alvinne 14 3.73 Belgium

Any surprises?

Again after a week if anyone else has posted a top ten I will compile an overall list.

Not sure my stats should count - I only have two with over 5 ratings!

For what it’s worth:
Mikkeller (10) 3.56 Denmark
AB InBev Belgium (5) 2.56 Belgium

(If the Channel Islands count, I can also add in Liberation (5) 2.96 Jersey)

Mostly German stuff. Surprised to see Septem among my top 10 (seems like I was very pleased to be able to drink something besides macro on my last trip to Cyprus). It’s a shame that the overall brewery score was removed. It would be interesting to see the overall rating vs. our own ratings.

St Bernadus Brouwerij, 5, 3.84 / Belgium
Mikkeller, 5, 3.74 / Denmark
Dogma Brewery, 5, 3.74 / Serbia
Brauerei Aying, 11, 3.72 / Germany
Brauerei Heller, 5, 3.72 / Germany
Septem Microbrewery, 5, 3.7 / Greece
Schneider Weisse G. Schneider & Sohn GmbH, 12, 3.69 / Germany
Bayerische Staatsbrauerei Weihenstephan, 13, 3.63 / Germany
Megobrebi Brewery, 11, 3.62 / Georgia
Bierbrouwerij de Koningshoeven - La Trappe Trappist, 5, 3.56 / Netherlands

  1. Gueuzerie Tilquin (Belgium) 7 @ 3.87

  2. Jopen (Netherlands) 6 @ 3.86

  3. Põhjala (Estonia) 16 @ 3.77

  4. Omnipollo (Sweden) 6 @ 3.75

  5. Sori (Estonia) 5 @ 3.7

  6. Bayerische Staatsbrauerei Weihenstephan (Germany) 5 @ 3.7

  7. Uiltje (Netherlands) 5 @ 3.68

  8. Lervig (Norway) 6 @ 3.66

  9. Schneider Weisse (Germany) 5 @ 3.64

  10. Brouwerij Oud Beersel (Belgium) 6 @ 3.63

So most of them qualify with the bare minimum. Surprised at Sori - although some were in the first stop of my 40th weekend in Helsinki so may have benefitted from my particularly good mood at the time.

Ha @YantarCoast I have enjoyed some Septem beers, it’s OK to like Greek stuff. I also noticed we have a few of the same breweries in our top 10’s; we seem to have similar tastes.

PS. I promise not to stalk you!

I’ve had a few Septem and found them quite tasty on the whole. Not in my top 10 but certainly reasonable scores.

I guess one could say that I like lambics or something.
If I would enter my untappd ratings, Antidoot would move to first, and Heller would move to third or fourth (as Hansla wasn’t very good), rest would probably stay the same.
