Slow beers and unmissable beers

In addition to being excellent from a purely gustatory point of view, the 127 slow beers are capable of telling a territory or represent a point of reference for a beer category . For the Unmissable beers, the adjective is explanatory: there are 358 beers worthy of particular attention for organoleptic characteristics and balance.
