There were approximately 2,500 breweries operating in the United States in 2013, so we can assume there were plenty of new beer releases to be considered for this list. A crew from firstwefeast.com picked their favorites and some of them happen to be our favorites too! Kudos to New Belgium Brewing's Accumulation White IPA, Victory Brewing's Dirt Wolf, and Goose Island Beer Co.'s Gillian and Bourbon County Barleywine for making the cut. Read the full article here and see if your favorite new beer from 2013 did too.

*NEW WINTER SEASONAL*
Birthdate: October, 2013
Body: Medium-light body.
ABV: 6.2% | IBU: 70
Hops: Target, Centennial, dry hopped with Mosaic and Amarillo
Malts: Pale, Wheat
Yeast: Ale Yeast for bright, fruity notes
Aroma: Strong hop aroma that displays all of our hop varieties: tropical fruits, bright citrus, spicy/herbal from the heavy dry hopping. This beer is a hoppy wonderland!
Mouthfeel: Resinous and slightly cloying from all those hop oils but finishes as clean and crisp as all of our seasonal family does and should.
Flavor: Big and bitter, just what this IPA ordered. Sweetness just barely dents its IBU armor. Nevertheless the addition of wheat really smooths out the rough bitter edge.
Visual: Cloudy haze, pale golden. Billows of white foam and gorgeous foam.
