What no Unicorn tears?? Oh alright.. No Leon or Hunaphu + versions. Marshal Zhukov.
Ps. No DONG
Event Horizion - crazy good at any price, but $13? Remarkable.
Foothills Jade IPA
Olde Hickory Death by Hops.
Schlafly: TIPA or AIPA
Those are all top notch beers but Flying Fish Exit 16 is the Garden State's best beer.
After tasting this year's Cafe Royale, I'd go with it. Alewerks Cafe Royale from VA!
And my homebrewed Citra IPA.
Missouri: Bud Light Platinum #1
followed by Perennial Abraxas with honorable mention to Vermillion
followed by Schlafly TIPA and pumpkin and maybe the single malt scotch? I was really drunk when I had it
followed by one of 2nd shift's saison's
Adirondack Jack Daniels BA Fat Scotsman
Southern Tier Choklat/Mokah/Creme Brulee
He'Brew Lenny's RIPA
Captain Lawrence Cuvee De Castleton/Nor' Easter
Cortland Beer Co. BBA Flight Level 410 Barleywine
Hometown home IN: 3F Robert the Bruce (for the common selection), 3F Darklord (for the rare selection)
Just moved away from home AZ: Papago Elsie's Irish Coffee Milk Stout, Sonoron White Chocolate Ale
Brand spanking new home CA: Ballast Point Victory at Sea
Agreed. I toyed with listing Black Ops as well. Great Brew, just been a while since i've experienced it. Good friend of mine has been cellaring some and we're planning on having them this Spring.... can't wait.
MN: Surly Abrasive.
uhm yeah im not even from PA but i visit several times a year and Weyerbacher is there...so like, what planet are you guys on?
Man you are relentlessly mean! : ) Afraid to admit the truth that almost everything from Sonoran and Lumberyard wallops your true loves?
Nice choices - mine would be:
MA: Ipswich IPA
VT: Hill Farmstead Edward Pale Ale
NH: Smuttynose IPA
RI: ('Gansett does brew good beer nowadays)
Well, different strokes I guess (do you like Saisons?). I certainly have not been impressed by anything from Full Pint. Also, Victory is my favorite brewery but Hop Devil is pretty mediocre as far as IPAs go. Victory's best offerings are their German styles and Belgians, so I could have easily went with their Lager, Braumeister Pils or Mad King's Weiss. I recently had the chance to try Helios on tap at a Victory beer dinner and it was the unanimous favorite among the beers we sampled.
Lake Placid Pub and Brewery's KB's Wee Heavy.
NH- Smutty IPA, Smutty Scotch Ale
It's a tough call, but Selin's Grove IPA is one of my favorite beers in PA.
Well I've seen a few from Ohio...but no Hoppin Frog love. B.O.R.I.S. The Crusher.
Arizona - Four Peaks Hop Knot on Cask - that's my serious vote.
PA: Voodoo Cowbell
(please bottle this stuff lol )
Not Oak Creek?
Lol can I come?
I bought a few in Whole Foods not too long ago. Black Ops that is. But BCS is frickin delicious. And I am not a fan of BB.
Iowa: Toppling Goliath Golden Nugget
Tennessee- Adam Bomb IPA from Blackstone. Not a lot to choose from that is brewed in TN but, Adam Bomb is a pretty darn good IPA.
with White Rajah being a close second and Columbus IPA a close third
Founders Breakfast Stout I believe to be the clear winner. They also make a ton of the stuff, so no trouble finding it.
I agree my dad lives 2 mins from full pint, chinookie is awful, Rye rebellion is estery as shit, tri pa is bla, their night of the living stout is way to roasty, their hobnober and pilsner are ok, and their all in amber is whatever. I hope they succeed but they need some recipe refinement, from talking to the guys at the brewery they are still evolving them though so maybe one day. My PA choice (my residency is PA) It would be troegs perpetual IPA, that beer is good. All their other offerings are good as well though.
From AR I would choose DB porter, we are kinda limited here. Diamond bear makes a decent porter that I think is as good as founders, their rocktoberfest is a good example of the style, the southern blond is a decent pilsner, the pale ale has won a couple medals in the GABF, their IPA is a...IPA, and that's pretty much all I have to say about them. We have no other real breweries in this state. Two or three brew pubs and a brewery that is some dudes hobby and he has no idea how to brew (refined ale).
IA -Toppling Goliath, PseudoSue.
From MD, so I have a few favorites.
Flying Dog Raging Bitch and BA Gonzo Imperial Porter
Heavy Seas Great'r Pumpkino
North Carolina. Duck Rabbit Baltic porter.
Good call. Perpetual IPA is up there for me too.
I think only saw one fellow Centennial Stater, and I don't disagree with his choices. I'll add Deceit by Funkwerks and pretty much any of the Great Divide Yeti family or...perhaps Ten Fidy.
Bros like imperial stouts.
I prefer La Cumbre Elevated IPA or Marble Red Ale.
NH - Having never had Kate the Great - the first batch of Nepenthe's "Lotus Eater" was out of this world good.
3. Fresh White Rajah
6. Siberian Night
Zombie Dust and Dreadnaught will get most of the Indiana love but I'll say Behemoth from Floyd's.
I've also recently really enjoyed Triton Rail Splitter and Flat 12's Half Cycle, both nice IPAs out of Indy.
Taste your way trough the Heavy Seas and Flying Dog offerings. Both are MD breweries that put out great stuff.
To me, those two breweries make a lot of 'good' stuff, stuff that's reliable and easy to find (Wildeman, Raging Bitch, Gonzo, Loose Cannon), but nothing that quite wows me.
