    My college buddy moved out to Sacramento, so we're having a quarterly beer exchange where we ship each other roughly $40 worth of beer that the other person can't get. I'm in Chicagoland, and he's a beer fan for sure but not totally up to speed on his new locale. He's looking for advice on breweries that are available in California but not Chicagoland/Illinois to send me. We're well aware of Russian River, and I've tried Ninkasi before so I passed that one along to him. Hair of the Dog was a winner from the first batch he sent me as well. Any other breweries and their better beers would be greatly appreciated.
