    I don’t think I understand the inclusion of Ruthless Rye in this lineup. It’s a spring seasonal, but a VERY different beer than all the others. I’m pretty much a straight-up IPA guy, but RR is a great change of pace for me.

    That said, I agree with Aprihop and Chain Breaker as the #1 and #2 choices. I had to be talked into trying Aprihop due to my appalling fruit beer snobbery.

    I wrestled a bit with including Ruthless Rye as well. In the end, I included it because it was different.

    Oh! And my personal fruit beer snobbery was banished from my brain about 9 years ago when I discovered Cantillon. And then New Glarus.
