AUTO CENTRAL - Januray 11, 2014: No, I'm not going to try and tell you what I think the top 10 beers are, I'm not qualified to do so. But I will tell you what Chris Steltz, the proprietor of Beer Geek Nation, says are the best beers.

As some of you know, The Auto Channel has been presenting Chris' beer reviews on our broadcast television network as part of our coverage of relevant "lifestyle" entertainment. We do this along with reviews of the best wines, food, and luxury wrist watches. If you are unfamiliar with Beer Geek Nation and can't receive our broadcast TV network you can watch Chris' videos on his YouTube channel or visit his website at BeerGeekNation.com

I'm primarily a wine drinker and a margarita lover, but I also do like beer. I just didn't know how much I liked beer until I started watching Chris' videos and trying out his craft beer recommendations; recommendations that include an unbelievably diverse range of styles and flavors. And from the research I've been doing, I can vouch for his taste. So without any further ado, here is the one and only Beer Geek Nation list of the Top Ten Beers for 2013:
