August Wikio Rankings

Now Neil has already done a good write up of the August Wikio rankings, but I also asked Neila from Wikio if I could do something a little different as well this month.

I enjoy the Wikio rankings, not only because their pretty darn fun, but because it gives many readers an idea of who's writing the good stuff each month. I also think that there's so many people writing great things for beer these days that the top twenty just doesn't cut it any more for a round up and preview.

So I asked Neila if I could present for the first time, (and from now on something that should become commonplace each month) something that happens on the US Wikio rankings:

This is how I think the rankings should be presented from now on, I don't know about you, but the more people's views we can get out there the better for great drinks everywhere. And who knows, maybe in a few months time we'll have to change it to the top 40!


  1. Top 40 would be great! Then I might actually get on the list.....

  2. Yes, or the top 50... ;)

    I note that it's beer and wine and also seemingly whisky. Isn't the US one beer-only?

    Congrats on your ranking, sir!


  3. Thanks Nick,
    I don't really know how the US rankings are presented, or if they just don't like wine or whisky as much as beer. I think it's good for beer then that even if we have wine and whisky included in our top 30 - 24 of them are still primarily about beer :)

  4. Any chance you can change this to the top 100 so I get my moment of fame at 93! ha ha hopefully joining the big guns at the top of the table later this year!
