    Best Irish Beer: Hard to choose, especially with the great selection from EBBC, but looking back, the O’hara’s Lublin to Dublin actually was the one that resounded most with me this year.

    Best overall: Wow, even harder! Looks like I have over 850 checkins on untappd this year. Only 7 5-stars though. I’ll give the edge to Smonk from De Struise Brouwers, as well as my first successful tasting of Pliny the Younger.

  5. Best over all beer: Black Boar

    Best Pale Ale or IPA: Bran & Sceolan (White Hag)

    Best Red or Amber: Fleadh Ale (White Hag)

    Best Brown: Big Bear (Trouble Brewing)

    Best Stout or Porter: Wrasslers (Porterhouse)

    Best Lager: Steam Boat (Galway Bay)

    Best Double/Imperial (Pale): Of Foam and Fury (Galway Bay)

    Best Double/Imperial (Dark): Black Boar (White Hag)

    Honourable Mention to 200 Fathoms by GBB, I think I might be suffering from how long ago it’s been since I had it but as of right now, I’m edging the award to Black Boar because I can clearly remember it, I had one last week 😛

    I don’t think it’s fair/workable to compare imperial/double IPA’s or stouts to their lower abv versions, so I gave them their own categories, because I can.
