There is nothing scary about an Alpaca. Alpaca's are sweet and gentle animals, and the LOVE to have their pictures taken. You've probably heard of Alpaca's Spitting. Well, it's true. They can and will spit at times. However, this is unusual unless they are really upset and provoked to do so. Just like other animals, they'll usually give you a look, and fire a blank volley first. Just be nice, and you'll have nothing to fear.

The weighted rank pulls the beer toward the list's average based on the number of ratings it has and aims to allow lesser-known beers to increase in rank. Only beers with at least 10 rankings to be considered; we took it a step further to only include beers with at least 100 user rankings in our gallery.
