Texans like to do things big -- and the brewers that call this state home are no exception (incidentally, they also play a part in making Texans increasingly big). The state has seen a steady stream of new breweries in recent years, but which of them reigns supreme?
That's far too big a question for just one individual to handle, so we put together a panel of beer lovers to pick the 10 best breweries in Texas. Each panelist (see below for bios and beer cred) submitted a ranked list of breweries from 1 to 10, with first place votes receiving 10 points, second place votes receiving 9, and so forth. Individual votes were kept anonymous to ensure the kind of brute honesty that often also accompanies drinking lots of beer.
