Mel’s Five-Star Brews

I’m a little stingy with five-star ratings on Untappd, so I decided to list those with 4.75 stars as well. I have over 1500 unique check-ins on Untappd, so I thought these lists were a good representations of some of my favourites. I have to say, though, I checked in some of these quite a long time ago and never had them again—I don’t even remember all of them!
