Drink Me Magazine, a beer, wine and spirits lifestyle publication, today announced its 150 best products for 2014. And, Milwaukee is well represented.
The Drink Me editorial team tasted hundreds of different examples in each category to narrow down their 50 best beers, wines and spirits. The judging and selections were led by Brian Freedman, Drink Me Magazine ’s new Editor-in-Chief.
Results can be found on DrinkMeMag.com.
Milwaukee shined with St. Stefanus Blonde, a new MillerCoors product, named as "Beer of the Year." St. Stefanus is wonderful. It's only available, as far as I know, locally at Calderone Club, the two Cafe Hollander locations and Cafe Centraal.
Milwaukee also snagged "Brewery of the Year (Domestic)" with Milwaukee Brewing Company taking the cake. MillerCoors' Tenth and Blake also made the "2014 Beer Winners" list with its Pilsner Urquell, another one of my favorites. Finally, Great Lakes Distilling's Rehorst Citrus & Honey Vodka made the publication's "2014 Spirits Winners" list.
"By leveling the playing field, and considering everything we have tasted on its own merits and against like-priced products, we hope to introduce readers to beers, wines and spirits that they may not have considered or known about before," Freedman explained.
"On this year’s list, for example, our favorites ran the gamut from a Cognac costing more than $20,000 to a Blaufränkisch that offers fantastic bang for the proverbial buck at under $20. We believe that, these days, lovers of great beers, wines and spirits appreciate quality at all price levels."
The Drink Me 2014 Elite 150 winners will be featured at two media and trade focused events in San Francisco and New York City, and included in the publication's end-of-year Drink Me Buyers Guide, which will be distributed nationally through both digital and print channels.
