Great Lakes Edmund Fitzgerald in Ohio.
Kudos, didn't see this before I 2nd the emotion.
That is an awesome avatar. Love me some Brand New. Nicely done. For California, as others have said, I think it has to be Sculpin.
West Sixth IPA - Kentucky
A more interesting way to look at this is what beer (available year-round in 6-packs) is most representative your state? Here's my list, feel free to fill in the blanks.
Alaska - Alaska Smoked Porter
Arizona - Corona
California - Stone IPA
Colorado - Dale's Pale Ale
Connecticut - Chateau Margaux 1995, consumed on a yacht
Delaware - Dogfish Head 60-Minute IPA
Hawaii - Maui Brewing Coconut Porter
Indiana - Three Floyd's Alpha King
Iowa - Anything to erase the memory of 2012 Hawkeye football
Kentucky - Blanton's Barrel Proof bourbon
Maine - Shipyard IPA wicked pissah
Michigan - *Insert comment about FBS coming to 6-packs here*
Minnesota - Doesn't matter. So cold it's impossible to taste anything.
Nebraska - 100% corn adjunct lager, preferably flat
Nevada - Whatever I can afford after I lose all my money at games of chance
New Hampshire -
New Jersey -
New Mexico -
New York - Something rude and far too expensive for normal people to afford
North Carolina -
North Dakota -
Oregon - Caldera IPA and a bong hit
Pennsylvania - Victory Prima Pils
Rhode Island -
South Carolina - do they have beer there?
South Dakota -
Texas - Tecate and a bar fight
Utah - A 6-pack of wives
Vermont - OMG Heady Topper zzzzzzzzz....
Washington - Some beer that's actually brewed in Oregon
West Virginia -
Wisconsin - Better make it a 12-pack
prob union jack
Wisconsin: O'so Night Train, Lakefront Riverwest Stein, NG Moon Man... I'm indecisive in moments like this but I think the O'so might win it (tonight).
Flying Fish has said that Exit 16 is going to be year Round. That's the winner in NJ.
^ These! And some runners-up, in 4-packs: Green Flash West Coast IPA and Sierra Nevada Hoptimum. Yum.
Oh yeah. I live in Ohio now-that makes it really easy
Great Lakes Edmund Fitzgerald
2nd would be Brew Kettle White Rajah
Weyerbacher Double Simcoe (I don't think its in 4 packs)
I've only had regular (many times, CC gets distro here) and the cedar/Humidor, but yes I have. I've only tried 50 or so IPA's and neither Jai Alai is in my top ten, and had them both fresh. Flower Power currently is my #3 reg. distro IPA.
I assume you have tried fresh Flower Power?
I'd say for WY, Pako's IPA and Zonker Stout.
Revolution Anti Hero
In NY I would have to go with Flower Power.
Illinois. A few to mention: Metropolitan Flywheel, Half Acre Daisy Cutter, and Two Brothers Cane and Ebel. All of which I have not done a formal review yet.
I haven't yet....Hook a brotha up! ha ha
For some reason I read that as area.
It's a four pack
Alpha King by Three Floyds
Either GL Eddie Fitz or Columbus IPA...i would include White Rajah but, of late, its been hit or miss in finding it in the normal spots on a regular basis...and im 10 minutes from the brewery sooooooo.....
Indiana- Alpha King and Zombie Dust. I love living here.
Even though some "hop heads" will disagree, I gotta go with Four Peaks Kiltlifter, also available in cans!
zombie dust, just wish it was more available
Grey Sail [of Rhode Island] Flying Jenny Extra Pale Ale.
Sorry, Abrasive isn't a year round beer.
Yes. I realized that after I posted. See my first answer.
I need to try Dark Cloud! I've had Sisters of the Moon and wasn't too impressed. I also wanted to get some Silent Night but didnt want to pay 19 dollars
Agreed. Wild Rice Double IPA is a winner. I just got a fresh one off the truck today down in North Carolina
Houston only Karbach Hopadillo or Weisse Versa. Saint Arnold is supposed to start packaging Endeavour in 6 packs also.
I kind of feel like this should be split up further. Like a best IPA from your state, best porter/stout, best wheat, or red etc. Especially with states like California that are huuuuge. While I cant disagree that Stone IPA isn't a great beer, is it the best in the state? hmm. Furthermore which states have the best beer?
My short list would be
3.) North Carolina (okay I live here so it gets higher ranking)
Gotta be Founder's Rye PA.
KY West 6th IPA cans!
Smuttynose Finest Kind IPA Portsmouth, NH
...oh wait, you were serious?
Just tried night train for the first time on Tuesday and must say I was pleasantly surprised. I'll be buying a 6-er soon.
Another thing I like is that is translates well to tap.
two hearted founders porter
Thanks for the laugh! ...especially Utah!
