1 Jacks Abby for bringing a type of beer neglected in the US at a fair price. 2 Stone for bringing great beer to parts of the US that would never see such a thing- if it wasn't for them. 3 Troegs for two of my favorite beers, Nugget Nectar and Mad Elf. 4 Sierra Nevada for being one of the first. And selling great ales at a great price- Torpedo is Vermont crack, cheap and very good. 5 The Alchemist for giving us something to hope for.
