Beer has been associated with us since ages and it has such a major role in our society. Billy Carter, the former spokesman for Billy Beer and brother of former President Jimmy Carter, once said, “Paintings are like beer, only beer tastes good, and it’s hard to stop drinking beer.” While not poetic, Carter’s statement does illustrate an important point: like art, alcohol is inseparable from the fabric of modern society.

Compared to wine and liqueurs, beer is the most economic option for drinks lovers. However, beer is no less than any wine, whiskey or cocktail. It has its own fan-base. Also, beer does not require an occasion. One can enjoy it when and wherever he/she feels like having it. So, which are your favourite beer brands that you would like to savour during weekends, night-outs, parties, or holidays? Here are UBR’s favourites - 10 top-rated beer brands to try before 2019 ends.
Buzzcock is 2019’s beer of the year from Butcherknife Brewing Co of USA. Buzzcock beer is a light-bodied brown ale with 4.3% alcohol by volume.
