Surly for sure!
I hate to say it but right now I'd have to say Hill Farmstead.
Their Saisons and hoppy beers are absolutely world class. Their "darker" styles have been well above average also.
Bell's....followed closely by Victory.
There are quite a few breweries that could keep me more-or-less satisfied:
Founders or Sierra Nevada
CCB all day for me
Kuhnhenn since they are a few minutes away. Could go Founders too.
If this is a free lifetime supply type thing and I don't have to purchase them or worry about availability, then The Bruery and I'll brew my own IPA's.
If I do have to worry about price and availability then it would be between Lagunitas, Firestone Walker or Stone.
Short's easily covers every style I enjoy and does it so well.
The only way you have "easy access" to HF is live in the area. Not a lot of people would want to live there.
Could do this equally easily with Anchor, Firestone, Russian River or Founders.
Ask me this a couple years ago and I would say 3 Floyds. Ask me this now and I would say... oh who am I kidding it is still 3 Floyds.
I can't just do one brewery forever, it would have to be two...
As a rule you will always have access to that brewery's beers, even if the state/country you live in is not in that brewery's distribution.
I'd die of stout withdrawals with RR. OVL Stout doesn't cut it.
Oh yeah Victory...another brewery with a satisfying lineup. The key would be the range of great beers.
Founders or FW
Odell's for me, biased because of proximity to brewery though.
Fair enough, more for me I suppose!
Yeah, they kinda get a pass on the stouty stuff just because I like the others so much. But then again, Mortification, Porter and Janet's Brown would satisfy my dark beer cravings pretty well I think
If its free, Three Floyd's. Paying ultra outrageous prices on barrel aged beers simply because of the name on the bottle would get old quick. If I'm paying, Firestone Walker for sure.
Sure it is.
Cigar City for me...gotta go with my home state...
although I could also do Bells, Sierra Nevada, Lagunitas, Stone, or DFH
Fuller, Smith and Turner PLC
Ballast Point. Style variance and tons of one-off kegs and casks to be had.
I'd go with Russian River. They have the IPA's with the Pliny's and they have the sours, wilds and Belgian styles. I'd miss some hefe's and oktoberfest but if I had to pick one, that would be it
Bell's all day
Rogue, so i could sip White Whale and Voodoo Doughnut every day.
Just kidding, it'd be Firestone.
I'd probably say:
Shorts: For their diverse range of beers which maybe aren't always great, but are usually interesting.
Hill Farmstead: For the exceptional attention to quality with pretty much everything they make.
Founders: Their regular releases alone are worth it.
Cantillon, Surly or Southern Tier.
Dogfish Head. I love any and every mintue IPA , indian brown ale, burton baton, palo santo, Bitches brew, you get it. Although they get butchered for making too many 'crazy' beers, you're going to have a lot of beer to choose from so that's nice. I'd like to try more from founders (am blown away by their stouts), I bet if I did I might have to betray my love at first sip / its so good when it hits your lips - brewery
thinking about what is available in my area
they've got me covered on every front.
although i might have a better chance getting some if i leave the state
Troegs. All the Troegenator Mad Elf and Nugget Nectar plus some scratch. I'd be a happy man!!!!!!
The Bruery or Cigar City. Tough decision. Probably The Bruery.
Cigar City for me. Having easy access to most of their stuff is one of the many huge benefits of living down here in southwest Florida.
