    Sierra Nevada easily. Plenty of IPA's to choose from, solid Porters/Stouts, great thrist quenchers (Summerfest, Kellerweis) they just have all the bases covered.

    Deschutes and Founders would be runner ups.

    Sierra Nevada for old school awesomeness, Cigar City for experimental, but consistantly great new-school-all-over-the-placesness. I am from MI and feel a little bad for not choosing something from my home stomping grounds like Bell's or Founders, but Florida and Cali got it goin' on.

    can't play that game. I'd say goose island, because I love their stouts and BC stuff but it's super heavy and I'd tire of it if that were all I could drink. Don't care as much for their ales. Lagunitas has sucks. me likey, but I don't like their dark beers. and I also need my alesmith. I need a variety!

    Fatheads no question. No matter what season it is they will always have a beer on tap that you would like. They are just starting to bottle their Oompa Loompa chocolate cream stout this is just one example of the awesomeness that Matt Cole and his crew puts out at their brewery. Plus they make headunter IPA, which I could not live without.

    New Glarus. Moon Man every day, Unplugged series on weekends. Still the best brewery in the country when it comes to variety and consistency.

    I might be getting ahead of myself, but I'd go Pipeworks. They have the full range of beers. I've never been disappointed whether it be a super hoppy Citra DIPA, Belgian, Berliner Weisse, Stout, you name it. Too many breweries specialize these days, which is great for us. I would have said 3 Floyd's 6 months ago, and I still lovely everything I have from them but they can't help themselves when it comes to hops.

    Stone or Great Lakes or Founders or Bells or Schlafly or Southern Tier would be a close second

    That's a hard one...

    Probably Russian River or Founders.

    I think I'd go DFH. Not because every beer they make is great (cause that's certainly not the case), but I don't think I would ever get bored.

    can here to say Deschutes. Never had a beer from them I didnt like. Their year-round stuff is great and the special releases are fantastic.

    for me next would be maybe Lost Abbey (I know many others wouldn't agree with this) or Ommegang.

    I'd probably keep it simple with Samuel Smiths. I've haven't had em all, yet would love to try their barrel aged Yorkshire Stiingo. Though I would miss the Belgian Style Quads. [​IMG]

    Wow no one has mentioned my pick ABInbev, considering the other thread they will soon own every brewery on earth might as well jump on board the monopoly train. All Aboard!

    Tough decision here, but I am going with Dark Horse. Very close honorable mentions include: Bell's, Founders, Great Lakes, Sierra Nevada and Sam Adams.

    Damn I hate this it's like Sophie's Choice so many great breweries. I'll say Great Lakes Brewing based on solid line up solid seasonals & great pub stuff, not to mention being my introduction to craft beer. Founder's is 2nd pushing Bell's to 3rd...
