The 20 Highest-Rated Beers Halfway Through 2022

Responsive image

Unbelievably, with the July Fourth holiday just around the corner, we've somehow made it halfway through 2022. And although Untappd's Year in Beer (our yearly roundup of drinking stats such as "The Top 10 Beers of 2021," "The Top 10 Breweries of 2021," "The Top 10 Cities of 2021," and "The Top 10 Styles of 2021") only happens once a year in December, we thought it would be fun to take a look at some of the beers you all are checking-in the most six months into the year. 

So far in 2022 some of best roundups have included: "The 15 Best Milkshake IPAs of 2022," "The 23 Best Saisons to Drink on Saison Day on April 23rd," "The 20 Best Hazy / New England-Style IPAs of 2022," "17 Best Pilsners of 2022," "15 Best Pastry Stouts of 2022," and "10 Best Imperial / Double Stouts of 2022."

But overall, we wanted to "check-in" and see what you all consider the top-rated beers in the first six months of 2022 (i.e. Jan. 1st, 2022, to June 31st, 2022). 

You'll find some heavy hitters along with a few surprises below…
