The 50 best places to relax with a pint

Acbw American Craft Beer Week seems to have come and gone with barely a whimper, but you can still check out the list of the Top 50 Places to Have a Beer in America, compiled by Beer Advocate. I have not visited a single place on the list, not even the places in Brooklyn, so far as I can remember. Has anyone been to any of the top 10? Are they really that much better than McCormack’s on 26th and 3rd in Manhattan or the Piper’s Kilt up in Inwood?
