    Lost Abbey. It used to be Russian River, and Alpine's clawing its way to the top, but Lost Abbey is currently my favourite California brewery - if not my favourite North American brewery.

    That's a tough one. I would have to say my all time favorite is Stone, because that's the brewery that really got me into good beer. My current favorite based on beers that I've really been enjoying lately is Iron Fist.

    Others that would be in my top list:
    Ballast Point
    Bruery
    Hess
    Green Flash
    AleSmith
