    I think Anchorage makes overall some pretty amazing collabs.

    I was pretty happy with Jolly Pumpkin - Anchorage - Calabaza Boreal

    Also, Anchorage - De Molen - Mud and Funk (best sour stout I have ever had, bar none)

    One of my regular favorites is Anchorage / Hill Farmstead - Arctic Saison

    I hear HF's-Blaugies La Serrasin, and HF-Dieu de Ciel - Brother Soigne are terrific as well.

    I also really enjoyed Stone's Unapologetic, and both versions of W00tstout.

    At the moment its gotta be Beavertown/Naparbier Bone King DIPA. No contest. Robert Plant's son should be very proud of himself.

    4 Happiness from Perennial/Side Project. I must be one of the few that was unimpressed by Xocoveza

    Permanent Funeral, although I'm not sure if this really counts if the collab was with a band. Otherwise, I'll throw out Collaboration Not Litigation. Incredibly tasty.

    3rd vote for WootStout.
    I try a decent amount of these but I guess I don't rate them very highly I noticed. After WootStout there's a long gap until I get down to Boulevard/Sierra Nevada Terra Incognita.

    Some of the beers that are collabs with non-brewing entities are also awesome (ie Permanent Funeral)

    The Bruery/FFF Rue de Floyd. That's one of the best beers I've ever had. Period. I'd do anything for another bottle.

    Surprised there aren't more Xocovezas on this list. I've seen that on a lot of top beers of 204 threads. I personally thought it was just alright, but I know it's popular as hell.

    Stone / 10 Barrel / Bluejacket Suede Imperial Porter blew my mind every time I tasted it.

    The Beer Camp collab between Russian River and Sierra Nevada I believe named Ivan the Terrible was excellent. It was like a slightly sour Duvel.

    So far:
    Between The Staves- Crooked Stave and Anchorage Brewing Company
    and
    Hop Kitchen Super IPA- Alpine and New Belgium

    Both are crazy freaking good beers.

    I haven't had too many collaboration beers, but thus far it would have Birra del Borgo & Dogfish Head's My Antonia. Very tasty!
