COUNTRIES WITH THE HIGHEST-RATED (AND LOWEST-RATED) OVERALL BEER
Central and northern Europe (including the British Isles) are famous
for their quality beers. However, the rapid expansion of
microbreweries and brew pubs in the last two decades has allowed the
United States to join the list of countries with the highest-rated
beer (even with the larger breweries pulling the average down).
Central American nations have the lowest-rated beer, on average.
Tropical countries tend to rank lower since hops grow best in cooler
These rankings are based on the average ratings given by people on
ratebeer.com (based on the 100 most
commonly-rated beers in any given country, unless there are fewer
than 100 rated beers). For a country to be ranked (generally
applies to the second low-rating list), it must have at least 5
rated beers (and 50 ratings total). While the website is
based in the United States, the ratings come from people from a
variety of countries (mostly developed).
