    Karbach ...

    it's not been around long, so it's more of a very young than under-rated brewery. but there's something about Karbach that makes me think it's going to be a Texas sensation, passing Saint Arnold and others as our flagship craft brewery.

    Metropolitan out of Chicago. They are doing some really solid German style lagers. Between Pipeworks, Half Acre and Revolution, I kind of feel that they get treated like the red headed stepchild of the Chicago brewery scene.

    First two that came to mind are Weyerbacher and Heavy Seas. I may be a bit biased towards Heavy Seas being in Baltimore, but they make really solid beers and I think they have (of the breweries I have access to), the best barrel aging program in the US.

    Probably Odell, If they pulled back production on Mycenary IPA, Hyped it up, only distrubited to colorado, only gave local bars one or two kegs per qaurter........it would be #1 on BA

    Honestly, I have to go with Cambridge Brewing Co. I think they do some really interesting beers and every time I visit I always am surprised by something new and interesting on tap.

    Schlafly is great and underrated. I go to their taproom every time I am in STL. Great food and beer. Schlafly Bottleworks is also definitely worth stopping by but I recommend the taproom.

    High Point (Ramstein) Brewing Co. is one of the most underrated breweries in New Jersey, the Mid-Atlantic seaboard, and these United States of America. Just saying.

    Here's my thing with Sam Adams: they brew an "every man's" beer great. But their higher prices "craft beers" are, in my opinion, shit.

    Highland Brewing Company. Consistently put out well made products.. I think they don't get a lot of love because of their under 6% philosophy for packaged beers (yes they do occasionally bottle big beers but its a rarity). They also lack a true 'west coast IPA' that everyone loves.

    I will say that I got a Crown Valley Brewing Gunslinger Double IPA in a beer club package last month and I thought to myself "why have I never hears about this before." I love Stones Ruination and I thought gunslinger was better.

    I beleive Six Point Brewery is very underated. They make some fantastic brews such as Righteous Rye and Bengali Tiger. I never hear much talk about them as I do others

    EPA is still a classic. Their Oatmeal stout is one of the best. Then there are there more recent changes (took 'em a while). Horizon Red is tasty when fresh and Saga is top notch IMO. The Unchained series has exceeded my expectations, and another series (union, soon to start) is exciting the hell out of me.

    The smokestack series is one of my favorite lines of beers I have had to date. Havn't had even one that I havnt liked (and I've had 10 out of the 15, the other five of which I cant find being: Chocolate Ale, Harvest Dance Wheat Wine, Bourbon Barrel Quad, Imperial Stout, and Love Child No. 2)

    Singlecut in Queens NYC. Doing some very solid takes on common styles, saw their upcoming releases and it's gonna get wild.

    IMO many mentioned are actually totally overrated, as Southern Tier just above.

    I am agree, that Victory is very good brewery, don't actually know how hyped it is in States.

    I'll go with Unibroue. They make some world class stuff but, at least in my area, even people who are really in to beer in general and Belgian style beers in particular either overlook them or aren't aware of them.
