We love beer. That's why we're devoting an entire year to discovering (and drinking) cold ones from near and far. Know of a beer worth shouting out? Send us a note at

In our Year of Beer, we’ve largely focused on beers we can be positive about. Beers we love. This time, though, I'm going to spotlight a beer you may well want to try … because you may like it more than I do. Tommyknocker is a fine enough brewery out of Colorado, with a decent selection of beers to their name. A few of their most noticed beers have been variations of brown ale—most popularly, their maple nut brown. And you know what? I don't like it. Even if you cast aside the overbearing sweetness, the maple flavor is so up-front you’d think your glass got dosed with maple syrup. To my palate, a good thing this is not—but tastes vary, you may think different, and it's certainly a brew that stands out from the rest, so try it yourself at Devil’s Den or Abbaye.
