  4. I will blindly try any beer from any brewery - but probably not blindly buy any beer from any brewery
     
  5. All of them.
     
  6. Stone, Sierra Nevada and Allagash can do no wrong. Rogue may have been up there if they hadent released that maple bacon doughnut, yuck!
     
  7. I'd blindly try any beer from any brewery as long as it's a single 12 oz bottle with a reasonable price tag.

    Not Bell's anymore... tried a '10 Eccentric Ale and ended up being drain pour #2
     
  9. Dieu du Ciel. Everything they brew is magical and delicious.

    I'd blindly try a lot from a lot of breweries. At the top I suppose I'd go with Founders, FFF, Victory, Great Lakes, Bells, Green Flash, Sierra Nevada, Surly, Green Flash, Half Acre, Ballast Point, Goose Island, and others.
     
  17. Dogfish head, weyerbacher, Russian river, and yards
     
  18. DFH...not my favorite brewery but I don't think I have ever had one of their beers I haven't enjoyed. even styles i don't usually like.

    RichD Advocate (715) Rhode Island Mar 18, 2012

    Jack's Abby
    Founders
    Firestone Walker
    and Hill Farmstead, even though I've yet to try their beer. Hopefully I'll be going up to Vermont some time in April.

    The IPAs from DFH that I've tried have been fantastic, but some of their brews are just too weird for me.
     
  29. Alesmith,Lost abbey, Dieu du Ciel, Alpine, Bruery, Southern Tier and then the list gets fuzzy, can I have another taster please.....
