Every once in a while, we'll publish the current ratings for the beers on our site.  That way, we can see how they change over time as trends change, as new beers are added, and as new votes come in.  Below is today's snapshot of the current beer ratings by users of this site.  To rate beers, login with your Facebook ID here.  Up-to-the-second ratings are always displayed at the bottom of the home page.

Lots to see from Cascade Brewing Barrel House and Deschutes who top the list as breweries with most beers appearing in the top 30.  There is also a pretty wide variety of styles, though there are a lot of heavy hitters in the 9%-11% ABV range.  Represented are Imperial Porters and Stouts, Blends, Krieks, Palles, IPAs, Espresso Stouts, Reds, Fruits beers, and a lone Cascadian Dark Ale at the bottom.

This is a simple 5 star rating system, so it only tells a very small part of the beer story in Portland, but I think it's important to get this view.  Over the next year, I think we'll see a lot of movement in this list as more votes come in.  What do you think?  Any surprises?  The great thing is, if you don't like what you see, you can login and rate your favorite beers right here!
