Red Chair = World's Best Beer!
Congrats to Deschutes Brewery for another prestigious award!
Red Chair is world's best
edit: also, as many of us know, The Abyss is the World's Best stout/porter!
Why can't I find the runners up to any of the categories!?!?
I'd like to see what they were up against.

Me too. Their "Complete Results" are not so complete.

The World's Best competition is a joke, at least it hasn't really gained the prestige that the World Beer Cup or GABF has.
Isn't claiming "World's Best" kind of pretentious? I mean sure, the marketing department can put it on a label and trick naive consumers buying the beer, but I'd feel cheesy making the claim.
I've had Red Chair, it's ok, but I've definitely had better pale ales and better beers in general.
My sentiments exactly. Which brewers received entrance forms?

Although I like Red Chair I'm pretty sure it would go over like a turd in a punch bowl in most if not all of Europe. Hard to give it a "worlds best"
Never heard of them

I'll try to find out from a brewmaster at Deschutes and let you guys know if he says anything.
