One year later: The NY Brew Authority’s most popular posts

Just about a year ago, the New York Brew Authority was born.  It’s over a hundred posts later, and the blog is still kicking.  Thank you to all the readers who visited the site over the last year and helped make the following blog entries the top 13 most popular pages.  I probably wouldn’t have guessed it would have made it even this long :)

Some of the earlier posts have had the advantage of accumulating page views over a longer period of time, but traffic to the site has continually increased, so newer posts have had more visibility to help balance that.

Without any further ado:
