  1. Kentucky - West Sixth IPA gets my vote. I know I sound Like a broken record about this beer, but it's really good!

  4. This does not track with my experiences. I've had their beers a number of times, and have never had a bad one.

    Well I own hunting property In Ohio, I buy all my beer in Kentucky lol given they get more than the state I live in which is WV. So I'll leave bourbon alone since we are a beer blog though we all know where the best bourbon comes from :). But I'll go with Ohio and Great Lakes Brewing Co out of Cleveland as this stuff can be purchased by the plenty in the state of West Virginia. The year round 6 pack I'll go with from GLBC is Edmund Fitzgerald Porter. The American porter may very well be my favorite style and it doesn't get much better than Edmund Fitzgerald. The only porter I can think of that compares based on sheer authenticity of the style and being time tested is the founders porter. But Edmund Fitzgerald is a beer I can enjoy with just about any style of meal here in my home and one I can enjoy any time of the year. You'll always see at least 1 bottle in my beer cooler as guests usually ask for it or just because it's world class and it's always a nice thing to have around. Many of storm cloudy nights have seen an Edmund Fitzgerald in one of my nonic pints. Hoppin' Frog and Jackie O's also are top notch Ohio breweries though Jackie O's doesn't really release bottles let alone a year round sixer

    In Atlanta, I suppose Sweetwater IPA is the best "local" six pack. At the same time, IMO the rest of their selection is weak/overpriced. I also don't think Terrapin offers anything in a six pack that warrants regularly buying (though they have some dank specialities/seasonals). I guess I'd go with anything Stone, Lagunitas IPA, or Bell's 2 Hearted if you're talking best readily available. Shit maybe Sierra Nevada Pale if you're talking best bang for your buck.
  12. DC - DC Brau "The Public" Pale Ale. However, "On the Wings of Armageddon" is about to be released in 6pk cans.

    Just put the last 6-pack of my case in the fridge. So sad. I bet by summer they'll have it year round.
    Lagunitas should just toss Pils or the 6 packs of Maximus and put Sucks in it's place.

    Prima Pils. Victory Brewing Co. Pa. I know its not a bomb but arguably the best domestic Pilsner.

    Though I could go w/Ness or Dort gotta say Eddy Fitz from Great Lakes here in Ohio. Based on state wide availability for sure.

    The 6 pack doesnt exist in Europe, so I can't help you on this one...

    BTW, I buy beer in a completely opposite way as the OP. I buy individual bottles and the occasional case of a beer I really enjoy.

    I am in the same situation with only 8 bottles left in my fridge, I do have another case but I am saving it for my Daughters 9th Birthday, this coming Friday, Oh its gonna be Great!
  23. Thomas Creek Dopplebock....I would say something from Wesrbrook but I've never seen a six pack from them.

    West Coast was my Go to beer when it was packaged in 6packs, but I still buy those 4 packs quite often, WC Great IPA!

  27. I want to say Prima Pils but I do really love some Perpetual IPA. Still, probably PP, yeah.

    Baxter's Stowaway IPA, perhaps a close second?
