Beer pick of the week: My top beers

According to Untappd, my top (14) beers are: Blue Hills Fortis Pagus, Blue Hills Imperial Red, Blue Hills Scotch Ale, Avery White Rascal, Avery The Reverand, Avery Hog Heaven, Brasserie d'Achouffe La Chouffe, Brouwerij Bosteels Tripel Karmeliet, Watch City Brewing Shillelagh Irish Red Nitro Ale, Bières de Chimay (Abbaye Notre Dame de Scourmont) Chimay Rouge, Ommegang Adoration, Ørbæk Bryggeri Kors Øøll, Brouwerij De Sint-Sixtusabdij van WestvleterenTrappist Westvleteren 8 and New Belgium Wild2 Lips of Faith.

So four are local. Five are from Colorado. And six are from Belgium (while at least 8 are "Belgian-style").

The point: I like Belgian beer.
