BEER SAMIZDAT'S TOP BEERS OF 2013 - THE STORY SO FAR

Yeah, I realize it's only August, but I felt for both my own sake and yours, I needed to revisit the highest-rated beers on this site and rank 'em for our collective edification. Consider it a shopping list, or a celebration of brewing, or some combination thereof. Me, I'll use it as way of jarring my memory so I know what to buy next time I'm stumped at the highfalutin beer store. Oh, and each link goes back to my original review. Here goes:
