    I am hoping the Firestone Wild series is a hit and pretty easy to come by.

  3. Foolproof and Bucket Brewing are both new to the Rhode Island beer scene. I am hoping one of them makes a big splash.

    Lagunitas as they start their 'East of the Miss' operations in Chicago. I've met Tony Magee and I expect some exciting and weird stuff immediately upon arrival.

    Societe Brewing Co. in San Diego. Everything I tried from them is really good, and looking forward to their sour line.

    I'll second that for sure. I had this only once...clearly not enough, not nearly. This stuff fresh is as clean as could be, that the citra hops just shine through. Would love to see this in a fresh bomber! Wow!

  14. Breaker Brewing in PA. Their Phoebe Snow White IPA was incredible this year.
  15. Schmoozer

    I hate to say it because I love them, but does anyone else this Founders creativity has gone stagnent?
  16. I don't think anyone has posted this yet and I worry it still may be to small, but Tree House Brewing in Mass is definitely one to watch in 2013. They are expanding their brewery and putting out an amazing product.

  18. Agreed on Kane. Best beer coming out of NJ. I'd take the Pepsi challenge and put their Head High IPA or Overhead double against any IPA in the country (yes, even Union Jack).

    This. The clear standouts in a crowded market of new Twin Cities breweries.
  20. Mystic and Idle Hands both have very good and they're offerings have grown more and more each time I go into my local stores.

    They are canning up a storm and so far I can't get enough of Cant Dog. I heard rumors of Sexy Choas in cans as well. http://beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/16842

    Hickory is still in the Piedmont, not even close to Eastern NC or did you mean distribution?

    Black Market Brewing, Temecula,CA tho established they aren't distro'ed everywhere. The have a Barrell Aged Brown on Cocoa nibs and Vanilla Beans. As soon (if) they get it into bottles, will be
    an instant hit! The Brew master there is Genius!

    Indeed from MN. Pretty much everything I've had from them has been solid.

    Plus Dangerous Man Brewing has been getting a lot of love recently. I'll have to check that out.

    + 1 to Prairie Artisan Ales out of Oklahoma......the first four beers are off the chain good.......Shelton Brothers is distributing the beers nationally.....Saisons, Barrel Aged Beers, and Sours......mainly in 750s.......The brewer Chase Healy is one of the most tallented brewers in the Southwest.......If you see Prairie Ale, Prairie Hop or Prairie Standard.......grab it......all are awesome Saisons!!

    YES! I live in the same state(3hrs away) & I'm hoping their stuff reaches NE Ohio...though I do enjoy the weekend trips to Athens.

    Funky Buddha with the new expanded brewery building hopefully open in april, can't wait to see how much more amazing brews they can pump out with that giant space of a building they have now!

    Pipeworks in Chicago has been making some tasty brews in their 11 months! I'm excited to see where they go in 2013.

    Odd Side Ales...

    Both Founder's and CCB...I know I know, but both have recently gone thru big expansions, and should really be putting out alot more of their beer, so more people will find out about them.

    Looking forward to the opening of Bent Paddle in Duluth. 2 experienced brewers making a go of it with a sizable production brewery.

    Flying Dog in Frederick, MD. Their Kujo is amazing.

  37. Total homer post, but I'm intrigued by Kane and the Flying Fish expansion. Tired Hands is run by awesome dudes and their beer is consistently blowing me away (full disclosure: my brother works there). Excited to see what the big screaming deal is with Funky Buddha, too.

    I was in Atlanta a few weeks back and must say, some of the best beer I ever had was from the Wrecking Bar!

    Also, Kane in NJ is an up-and-comer to look out for!

    Word from Dan Kleban is that won't happen anytime soon. The hops they use come in quarterly (possibly the same hops they use for Lunch, which are also only available quarterly), but they may make another batch for kegging- but don't expect to see any bottles.

    DanK4 Aficionado (240) Maine Jan 17, 2012

    Oxbow for sure- those guys have been kicking out some killer beer AND they have opened a tasting room with more open hours so it's easier to get up to Newcastle. Maine Beer Co as well- can't wait to see what collab/new brews come out from these guys.
