    I have a friend going down there for a week. I would like him to get some stuff I can't get in Wisconsin. Pliny? Ballast? AleSmith? Alpine? A list of beers from places would be great. Thanks

    Yes Alesmith...others correct

    If you do a search of this forum after using seekabrew you should find the places to go being discussed..I'm sure I've listed most of them in the state with a few sentences of comments at least couple of times...
    if you are still stuck post again and i'll make some suggestions

    We do need to know where in AZ he'll be (AZ is the the sixth largest state by land area) and maybe what kinds of stuff you dig (styles)....or if you just wanted to know what good breweries AZ gets seekabrew will help you out, though it is not totally updated.

    Besides those above the ones that get lots of press that we get
    Anchorage (but not Midnight Sun)
    Epic (UT)
    Port/Lost Abbey
    The Bruery
    Dogfish Head
    Great Divide

    I have been on seekabrew.com and I don't think it is reliable, so I like to ask from local BA's. He will be in Phoenix and I want him to pick up stuff I have stated and local brews, including from Nevada, Arizona, and New Mexico.
  4. From Nevada Tenaya Creek and Joseph James, from New Mexico Marble and Santa Fe, from Arizona Four Peaks, San Tan, Lumberyard, Oak Creek, Mudshark, Papago, Sonoran, Prescott, Mother Road, Grand Canyon, Old World, Bad Water and Nimbus all package. I would tell your friend to do his shopping at either Papago, Tops, Sun Devil or Whole Foods in Chandler or Scottsdale as he can enjoy a beer on site while he is shopping for you. In addition to the states you listed and what was already mentioned you might want to have him look for Knee Deep, Cismontaine, 50/50 Eclipse, Ska, Odell, Uinta, Wasatch, Breckenridge, Sudwerk, Rubicon, Marin, Moylans.

    Cheers, Ron

    Right, but thankfully his friend can get Old World, Grand Canyon, Sleepy Dog, and other locals! :)
