Some of America's best craft breweries are descending on the Altman Building in New York City this weekend. They'll be pairing their well-crafted brews with gourmet eats at the Brewer's Association Savorevent, an opportunity for America's chefs and brewers to put their best feet forward.

As Savor creeps up on us this weekend, it has inspired us to consider the top breweries across the country. There are over two thousand breweries, big and small, crafting amazing beer in the U.S. right now.

For Jimmy Carbone owner of Jimmy's #43 and host of Beer Sessions Radio on Heritage Radio, the list of top breweries means more than just top sales or top sellers. He also takes into consideration the brewers' creativity, their full line of impressive beers and even just the beers that he's delighted to find in any restaurant, pub, or bottle shop. He shared his picks for the best 25 breweries in America with us.
